    State Gifts are exchanged between Heads of State. Depending on the nation, the Head of State may be a monarch, president, prime minister, a secretary general, or otherwise titled high-ranking leader. State Gifts are received by U.S. Presidents on behalf of the people of the United States. The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum is home to 4,776 State Gifts.

    Perhaps the most notable State Gift received by the United States during the Nixon presidency was the gift of two giant pandas, Ling-Ling and Hsing-Hsing, from Chairman Mao Zedong of the People's Republic of China in 1972.


    Public Gifts are gifts presented or sent to the President of the United States by non-governmental entities, such as members of the public and public or private organizations, as well as from the people of other nations. Once received, such gifts belong to the American people. More than 30,000 Public Gifts are in the holdings of our museum.
