We can expect a new effigy on the NCLT issues of the SMOM soon ...

Martin,
  The Order of Malta has now got a new Grand Master,who is an Englishman named Matthew Festing.

Here's an article; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_Festing .

I'm not sure when the new S.M.O.M. medal-coin issues are coming out though.

And a Geordie, too, I see!  This is most welcome news - thanks for the link.  I'll definitely have to buy the 2008 set when it comes out.

Martin,
  The first medal-coins of the new Grand Master's reign may be issued either late this year or possibly early next year.

You could try looking up on the S.M.O.M.'s website or even emailing their numismatic & philatelic department.

I'm on their mailing list already - while I bought the 2006 set I didn't bother with the 2007s.  I probably should have, on reflection!

Martin,
  Can you please post up some photos? You should email some photos to both Krause & Schoen as well.

I see that a "sede vacante" issue (for want of a better term) dated 2008 has been produced - a silver "scudo" in .986 silver with a mintage limit of 1,000.  I'm tempted, but I don't know if I'm tempted enough at EUR 40.00 for a 33 mm silver piece, even when postage is included in the price :-)

Martin,
  I'm not aware of this having been issued.I reckon that 40 Euros would be a very fair price to pay,considering that the mintage figure would be pretty low.
