It is a coin that is twice the thickness and weight of the regular version of the coin. 

Here's more info about it and a great picture example too..

@Nishant : The best starter books are the 5 Krause catalog of world coins for each century

1601-1700

1701-1800

1801-1900

1901 -2000

2001 - Present

Depending on what coins you want to know, you can buy that book. It contains all the years of issue and the current price of the coin, mintage, metal used, etc. Very useful starter book!

@Broken Compass, that's really lucky find. One of the rare coins I say. How much you paid for it?
