USCG Air Station San Francisco

US Coast Guard Air Station San Francisco has been protecting the San Francisco Bay area through war and peace since 1941. As the San Francisco metropolitan area has grown over the last 70 years, so has the Air Station San Francisco presence grown from one PBY Catalina Flying Boat to a fleet of MH65C helicopters covering Search and Rescue operations along 300 miles of Pacific coastline from Point Conception to Fort Bragg.

For six decades the primary mission of Air Station San Francisco was Search and Rescue. Today, that mission has been expanded and heightened to include security of the ports, waterways and coastal regions of the San Francisco Bay area, in a Homeland Security function. More specifically, the Station is charged with stopping clear and present threats to high-profile targets such as cruise ships, naval vessels, and bridges in Northern California.

The bold US Coast Guard Air Station San Francisco coin is a symbol of the Station’s dedication to duty, and to the bravery and skill of aircrew in dispatching their responsibilities. This handsome challenge coin is finished in rich enamels, the obverse showing a patrol helicopter over the Golden Gate Bridge, with a colorful outline of the Bay Area in the background. The reverse is the US Coast Guard crest on a field of sea-blue.
