You have what's known as a "Magician's Coin".
This is NOT something that was done at the Mint.
This was made by altering two normal coins and gluing the altered pieces back together. Use a magnifier to check just inside the rim on one side of the coin -- you are looking for the seam where the two pieces were joined -- it could be on either side of the coin.
This novelty item sells regularly on eBay.com for a couple of dollars.
One such coin has been certified as an authentic mint error and I believe it sold for (or was valued at) about $25000. If one coin was struck with these mismatched dies, there must have been more, but perhaps only one slipped past the QA inspectors.
Your local coin shop will have the address for all the major grading and certification services or you can find their ads in any of the regular numismatic publications. If it is real, you won't be able to sell it for 25 grand without certification from PCGS or ANACS.
They cost about $8 in novelty shops.
the eagle cion
It is worth nothing. You could try and take the two headed coin to a coin expert. But it is just a misprint.
It all depents in the year n condion of the coin. I have 1959 silver quarter double head in both sides n I done my homework n its nt that much u could email me a pic at firstname.lastname@example.org
This will be worth a minimum of 800 dollars or more. This is a rare coin and is really only worth what a dealer will pay for it or a private person on auction sites.
Depends on how many made it into circulation and how much off center it is. Is it both sides or only one side?. Which side if only one side? What condition is the quarter in? What state?
No US silver dollars or bullion "eagle" coins have an eagle on both sides. You may have a privately minted piece, a fantasy coin, or a "magician's coin" made by cutting two genuine silver dollars in half like an Oreo cookie and swapping the sides.
At minimum, it currently has $3.50 worth of silver in it. Without either seeing pictures of both sides, or a very detailed description of both sides, it's impossible to provide any meaningful estimate of value.
It's called a Walking LIBERTY half dollar, and the fact that it has the eagle on both sides means it's a magician's coin. Please see the Related Question for more information.
i have this coin, its worn but can see the date clearly and picture on both sides, is it worth anything ?
On both sides there is: George Washington - USA's First President' Bald Eagle - USA's national bird or on the newer ones they have a states name when it became a state and the year the quarter came out.
Zero. Please search this site for the word DOUBLE. You'll find hundreds of similar questions about these trick "coins".
I'd guess that it's an 1851 Mexican quarter peso, but I'd need to see it to be sure.
Please see the many, many other similar posts on this site for an explanation of how these novelty pieces are made from the halves of 2 genuine coins.
Washington is on the quarterLincoln is on the pennyYou have what's called a magician's coin. See the Related Question for more details.
Sheet metal on both sides of the vehicle mainly tastes the rear.
The New Jersey state quarter has the standard portrait of Washington on one side, and a picture of him leading the Crossing of the Delaware on the other.
This is called a lamination error and occurs when one or both of the coin's cupronickel outer clad sides failed to bond properly to the copper core. Currently, state quarter lamination errors are retailing in the $12 to $15 range.
I credit one of my brother's Connecticut middle school students with the following.Upon the minting of the state of Washington's commemorative quarter, Governor Chris Gregoire said that it was the first quarter with Washington on both sides.Upon hearing of this, the young student said, "That's not true. New Jersey's quarter has Washington on both sides."My brother and his student notified Gregoire of this fact but received no response.MoreMost likely you have a so-called magician's coin, a novelty item made by slicing two standard quarters in half and swapping sides. They sell for a few dollars in novelty and gift shops.
Since it's impossible for that to have happened at the mint, it would be considered a damaged or altered coin, at best a novelty item with a value of a buck or two.
The origin of ambivalence is from the Latin ambi- 'on both sides' and valere 'be worth'.
A normal coin will have the head and eagle upside down from each other. When you flip the coin top-to-bottom both sides should remain upright. When you flip from side-to-side both sides should be opposite. If your coin does not fit this description, you could have a rotated reverse mint error.
Both the 1909 and the 1909-O (the mintmark if any will be on the back of the coin under the eagle) are better date coins. The 1909 is worth about $8 if worn, and the 1909-O is worth about $15 if worn. The Barber series is filled with condition rarities where even common dates can be worth hundreds of dollars if uncirculated. Without seeing your coin I can't give a full value, but in better shape both the 1909 and 1909-O can be worth $50 or more.

The 1889 quarter which has a buffalo on it is the NORTH Dakota quarter not South Dakota. The South Dakota 1889 quarter depicts Mount Rushmore. Both quarters were released in 2006. Unless they are proof they are worth 25 cents.
