This design by Everhart was chosen as the 106th issue of the prestigious Society of Medalists series.
Its obverse bears seven leaping dolphins in waves on deeply recessed field. Below, EVERHART"
The reverse bears Poseidon's trident over crenulate shell; two dolphins with heraldic hindquarters. In center, THE / DANCE / OF THE / DOLPHINS
Everhart believed that the Dolphin personified the grace and beauty of the sea to the ancients. As he wrote in the brochure accompanying the medal:
"Perhaps someday we will communicate with the dolphin on a higher level than thought possible. Maybe then we will learn what they obviously already know; that life is to be enjoyed and celebrated, and that we can live in harmony in our environment."
Nicola Moss, another SOM sculptor, also created a medal featuring dolphins, called Into the Blue, though not as part of the Society of Medalists series.
The medal measures 73mm in diameter and was produced by the Medallic Art Company of Danbury, Connecticut. Its reported mintage is 750 pieces in bronze.
