Your photos aren't too good, I'm afraid (shaking with anticipation ) but it could be a coin of one of the Ptolemy's from the Tyre mint - there are a lot coins of the Ptolemys and the upright club to the left of the eagle was used to denote Tyre.
If you go to coinarchives.com's search page, click on "New! search options", click on the lower option (old search type) then enter
Ptolemy AND eagle AND club NOT stater
and anything else to limit the search, then scroll below the "100" and click on 500. You can also then add to the search line by adding NOT... words.

This reminds me of Macedonian coins depicting Perseus and an Eagle, struck by King Perseus.
