Just found this on my computer. I think it's from Heritage Auctions?

"The Monitor sank on Dec. 31, 1862 which may have occasioned this commemorative piece. The token has an image of the USS Monitor, the famous ironclad that fought the CSS Virginia at Hampton Roads on March 9, 1862, on one side and the year 1863 on the other side."
