This pin design relates to the Nixon Library's exhibition The Opening to China: The Week that Changed the World. Coming to the presidency in 1969, Richard Nixon believed it was time to reconsider America's longstanding hard-line stance against opening a relationship with the People's Republic of China. In February 1972, Nixon made his historic trip to China, ending 25 years of silence between the two nations.
