The reverse side has definite US influence. It is a beautiful looking token/medal. Congratulations!

This could be some kind of token.

The reverse is similar to the 1837 half cent token in the 2015 Red Book.

Jenny Lind was a singer that came to the U.S. in the 1850's. She worked with P.T. Barnum. Your token looks great!

She was in US in 1850 this from wikipedia : In 1850, Lind went to America at the invitation of the showman P. T. Barnum. She gave 93 large-scale concerts for him and then continued to tour under her own management. She earned more than $350,000 from these concerts, donating the proceeds to charities, principally the endowment of free schools in Sweden
