"The medal-like our meeting symbolizes more that the settlement of a boundary dispute. It commemorates the meeting of two people, in freedom and in understanding, to celebrate an act of reason and justice..."� Lyndon B. Johnson

This medallion commemorates the formal transfer of lands between the United States and the United Mexico States on October 28, 1967. The medal features an international boundary marker in the center.
