I asked a representative from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization about the current status of the Money and Medals programme that got all those countries over the years to put food-related designs on their coinage and medals. The M&M program started in 1968, but I was not sure about when it ended, if it had ended, only rumors that it had stopped. A user here I think told me it closed down in 2004. So, I asked the FAO! Here is the first reply that I got from the FAO: "Thank you for your interest in FAO and the Money and Medals Programme. I am the only one still working in FAO that worked on for many years with the programme. Unfortunately, it closed down about 7 years ago [that would have been 2011]. FAO is not selling or dealing with any medals or coins." And then the representative got back to me later after asking around some more: "Please kindly note I have been informed from the Legal office of the following: 'The Money and Medals Programme has not been actively advertised over the past years, it is our understanding from a review of the records that the Programme has not been officially closed.'" Well, that clears that up. I guess it hasn't closed down, they just aren't promoting it any more!
