Given just about any investment, you "could" double your money with it, given enough time. Or you "could" lose it all. Even a bank account paying 3% interest will double your money in around 23 years, with very low risk.

But since you said,
This investment was allowed only once to an individual by the Federal Government
That's an earmark of a scam. It's very rare that the feds allow you to do something once and only once.
