This coin has a eagle on one side and a double eagle on the other. On the side with the eagle head it has written American Eagle Bicentennial 1985 and on the side with the double eagle is written double eagle commemorative with stars and 200 years It appears to have a silver base with the eagle's done in gold. It is in a clear plastic case. Any ideas of worth?
Yes. That's a Morgan silver dollar.
The American Silver Eagle is a coin worth one dollar. It is an official bullion coin, meaning it is stored for its value and not traded in regular commerce. The coin is 99.9% silver, with an image of Walking Liberty on one face and the titular eagle on the other.
Silver currently sells for about $20/oz
Like every other double-headed coin out there, it's a "magician's coin" made by cutting 2 normal silver dollars in half and swapping sides. The good news is that the silver in the "coin" is still worth about $10 to a metal dealer.
The most dominant and persevering symbol is probably the "Double-headed eagle" which, other than for the "Soviet" period, has been used as a symbol for hundreds of years. It appears on the current 1, 2, 5 and 10 Ruble coins.
As you have seen from other postings, double-headed coins are novelty items made by slicing apart 2 genuine coins and joining the matching halves. They have no numismatic value.
You have one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver. Current value about $16. BUT I GUESS THIS IS NOT SILVER If the word PEACE is under the eagle, you have a standard-issue dollar coin made of 90% silver. Its value is around $16 depending on the price of silver.

A "Double Eagle" coin is any US $20.00 gold coin, no other coin. Ten dollar gold coins are Eagles, Five dollar are Half Eagles and Two and a half dollar are Quarter Eagles.
Only the ones made as magician's coins, the same as the ones in the U.S. and other countries.
