The ship was named for United States Marine Corps Lieutenant General Frank E. Petersen Jr. the first African-American Marine Corps aviator and the first African-American Marine Corps general. The contract for the ship, along with the name, was first announced in a press release from Huntington Ingalls Industries on 30 March 2016.

This coin is struck in a shiny frosted finish and features special transparent enamel combined with a 3D UV-printed representation of the ship that gives an impression that can be both seen and felt. The reverse proudly displays the ship’s crest in colorful enameled detail.
