Medal riband fitted with crimp brooch riband that is fitted with long hinged pin and intricate drop lock & clasp fittings

The Organization of American States 'Merit Medal' has it's origins in the 1965 Dominican Republic crisis. A leftist revolution broke out that would have succeeded had it not been for an American military intervention in cooperation with the Organization of American States or OAS. To honor the participants of this campaign the Inter-American Peace Medal For Merit was designed with a Spanish legend and inscription and showing the western hemisphere

The OAS came into being in 1948 with the signing in Bogot?, Colombia, of the Charter of the OAS, which entered into force in December 1951. It was subsequently amended by the Protocol of Buenos Aires, signed in 1967, which entered into force in February 1970; by the Protocol of Cartagena de Indias, signed in 1985, which entered into force in November 1988; by the Protocol of Managua, signed in 1993, which entered into force in January 1996; and by the Protocol of Washington, signed in 1992, which entered into force in September 1997

The Organization was established in order to achieve among its member states?as stipulated in Article 1 of the Charter?"an order of peace and justice, to promote their solidarity, to strengthen their collaboration, and to defend their sovereignty, their territorial integrity, and their independence"

Today, the OAS brings together all 35 independent states of the Americas and constitutes the main political, juridical, and social governmental forum in the Hemisphere. In addition, it has granted permanent observer status to 69 states, as well as to the European Union (EU)
