I see what you mean Shariq.  It definitely looks over struck to me.

Your skills at reading Persian are better than mine Shariq.  And when I see a double strike, my confidence  vanishes.

Frankly, I had trouble seeing anything until I inverted the colours. Here's what I've found on the coin. I am not sure why it woud be double struck, but I think it's too far gone for identification. Sorry.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
