If my recollection is right, since becoming King, Felipe had worn the same small Golden Fleece miniature at gala events, and hadn't worn medals on his lapel since his last State Dinner as Prince of Asturias until the State Visit from Israel in November. I think it's also the first time he's worn his Spanish orders during a State Dinner since June 2014, so that may have been a factor in his decision. Did he ever wore another Golden Fleece miniature while Prince of Asturias?
He didn't upgrade to a bigger, more bejewelled miniature when visiting fellow monarchs in the UK and Japan:
