The gilded medal-shaped token is dedicated to the American Navy, as it stated on one side of the item. The token is thematically decorated with ship ropes as frames, seahorses and other nautical symbols. One side shows the bold eagle holding the anchor with a vessel on the backdrop. Here are the words “United States Navy” placed divided by the seahorses. The other side of the token depicts the Greek mythology’s Poseidon considered to be the god of the sea. Poseidon on the image has a fishtail and holds his magic trident. Opposite to him is the giant mythical monster. The semicircular inscriptions along the rim on this side celebrate crossing the line which is the initiation ceremony for sailors when they pass the Equator on a vessel for the first time. Those who already did are called Shellbacks in US Navy.
