There are several different kinds of doubling that can be found on coins -- whether it's caused by a doubled image on the die used to stamp the coin, or caused by excessive wear or damage to the die, or caused by the coin being actually stamped twice, or caused by other reasons.

There is an excellent web page that explains the different kinds of doubling (with pictures) here :
