Maritime passenger fleet is Морской пассажирский флот in Russian, pronounced MORskoy PASsazhirskiy FLOT, hence the text from 7 to 5 o'clock. It is a pretty typical way to form the name of a Soviet enterprise. I wonder how the token was used.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

It has been suggested it was used as ships currency but then I would expect to see a denomination ??? ...apparently other varieties are found with various counter-marks.

Apparently this is used on passenger ships in slot machines for gambling.
