First flown in 1964, the HC-130 Hercules has served many roles and missions. It was initially modified to conduct search and rescue missions, provide a command and control platform, in-flight-refuel helicopters and carry supplemental fuel for extending range or air refueling.

The HC-130 can fly in the day against a reduced threat or fly night, low-level, air refueling and airdrop operations using night vision goggles (NVG). It can fly low-level NVG tactical flight profiles to avoid detection. To enhance the probability of mission success and survivability near populated areas, crews employ tactics that include incorporating no external lighting or communications, and avoiding radar and weapons detection.

Secondary mission capabilities include performing tactical airdrops of pararescue specialist teams, small bundles, zodiac watercraft, or four-wheel drive all-terrain vehicles; and providing direct assistance to a survivor in advance of the arrival of a recovery vehicle. Other capabilities are extended visual and electronic searches over land or water, tactical airborne radar approaches and unimproved airfield operations. A team of three pararescue specialists (PJ's), trained in emergency trauma medicine, harsh environment survival and assisted evasion techniques, is part of the basic mission crew complement.

HC-130 Air Stations:

This coin commemorates the HC-130, and all of the men and women who have served aboard it. Minted in a proprietary brass alloy, the coin is struck using a special "splash minting" technique which affords high relief and detail. The coin is given an antique finish, then packaged in a polybag with a header card. This coin has a reverse designed to allow for personalized engraving.
