This "Legends of Legislation" Commemorative Coin honors U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her visit to Ukraine, Taiwan, South Korea & Japan.

On May 1
st 2022:

Nancy Pelosi made an unannounced visit to Ukraine to meet with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and other top officials in Kyiv. This marked the first official congressional delegation to Ukraine since the Russian invasion began. At the capitol of Kyiv, Pelosi delivered an unmistakable message to the entire world: America stands firmly with Ukraine!

“Our commitment is to be there for you until the fight is done,” Pelosi told Zelenskyy during their meeting. President Zelenskyy awarded Nancy Pelosi with the Order of Princess Olga for a “significant personal contribution” to strengthening Ukrainian-American cooperation and “supporting sovereign, independent and democratic Ukraine”.

Later at a press conference in Rzeszow, Poland, Pelosi said the time she spent with the Ukrainian president was “a remarkable master class of leadership”.

Following her trip to Ukraine, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi arrived in Taiwan on August 2nd 2022, becoming the highest-ranking American official in over 25 years to visit the self-ruled island claimed by China. In a response to Pelosi’s visit, China quickly announced that it would conduct military maneuvers in retaliation for her presence.

Aboard a U.S. Air Force passenger jet, the speaker of the House was greeted on the tarmac at Taipei’s international airport by Taiwan’s foreign minister and other Taiwanese and American officials. Pelosi framed the trip as part of a broader mission at a time when “the world faces a choice between autocracy and democracy.” Her visit comes after she led a congressional delegation to the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv in the spring, and it serves as a capstone to her many years of promoting democracy abroad. Citing the commitment that the U.S. made to a democratic Taiwan under a 1979 law, Pelosi said, “ We must stand by Taiwan”.

“It is essential that America and our allies make clear that we never give in to autocrats,” she wrote. Pelosi has made criticism of China and support for Taiwan a key focus in her more than three decades in Congress. In remarks at a meeting with Tsai on Wednesday, she said, “Today the world faces a choice between democracy and autocracy.”

“America’s determination to preserve democracy, here in Taiwan and around the world, remains ironclad,” Pelosi said.

After Taiwan, the speaker of the House will visit South Korea and Japan, both major U.S. security partners in Asia.
