I would like to take the time to congratulate His Majesty (HM) King Felipe VI, King of Spain for receiving the Medal for Foreign Policy from the Foreign Policy Association of New York, NY, USA on the 26th of May 2022. The medal is the highest recognition for those who demonstrate responsibility for the work of Internationalism of Foreign Affairs and much more. I appreciated listening to part of your address, especially with respect to Human Dignity, and the effect that the absence of this can have upon human beings, and to also acknowledge the work that needs to be done in terms of human rights, and improving the human conditions. Thank you and Congratulations H.M King Felipe VI, king of Spain!!!
The receiving of the medal also reminded me of the Spanish currency in America, which was the first legal tender of monetary exchange in the USA. The Spanish Dollar was known as the piece of Eight and was minted by the Spanish Empire in 1497. The Spanish Dollar remained the legal International currency and mechanism of exchange until the Coinage Act of 1857 established by the United States Senate. This act led to the creation of U.S. Mint to limit and discontinue the use of foreign currency, especially after the union of the United States was created from the Revolutionary War of 1775, that led to the Declaration of Independence in 1776. The time period from 1776 to 1857 reveals the time that it took for establishing the Coinage Act, and that the Spanish Dollar did remain in circulation even after the United States Revolutionary War, and the formation of the Union that began with the 13 States.
This medal received by H.M. King Felipe VI of Spain is a proud moment to reveal that nations, kingdoms and Empires that were once at war can becomes allies, friends and an integral part of National, International alliances and co-operations. Congratulations and all the very best!!!
