The USS Carter Hall (LSD-50) plays a critical role in America’s naval superiority across the globe. A Harpers Ferry-class dock landing ship, she is well equipped to support amphibious operations in any theater. The USS Carter Hall is named for a historic estate in Millwood, Virginia. It was designed by William Thornton, the architect of the United States Capitol, and served as headquarters for Stonewall Jackson during part of the American Civil War.
Commissioned on 30 September 1995, the USS Carter Hall has a displacement of over 16,000 tons and stretches some 610 feet in length. Due to its amphibious support capabilities, the USS Carter Hall is ideally suited to support the Navy’s critical mission abroad, and can carry a fully equipped detachment of approximately 500 Marines, ready to strike for freedom wherever they are needed.
This coin is minted in bronze, finished with an antique patina, and pays tribute to the USS Carter Hall, saluting the exceptional service of her crew. The obverse contains a scene with a portside view of the USS Carter Hall cutting through the water, with the namesake Carter Hall in the background. The reverse displays the shield and crest of the USS Carter Hall, imbued with bold colored enamel.
Each coin measures 1 3/4 inch (44mm) round in diameter.
