Monaco apparently plans to issue a full eight-coin set this year. Also, the 2006 coins will have modified designs, according to what G. Schön (the catalog author) wrote today:

 

1, 2, 5 cent: modified position/style of the stars and the country name

10, 20, 50 cent: Prince Albert's (mirrored) monogram, instead of the Grimaldi seal

1, 2 euro: Portrait of Albert, instead of the former prince Rainier and the double portrait

 

Mintage (proof) about 11,000 sets. No "official word" (let alone pictures) yet ...

Monaco should put Princess Grace on their coins.

They did, in two cases, when Rainier was Prince. One time in 1966 (10th anniversary of their wedding) http://img166.imageshack.us/img166/3115/mc10freu3.jpg and another one in 1982, shortly after she died http://i17.ebayimg.com/06/i/08/0e/8e/f5_1_b.JPG

Frankly, I don't like either piece much.

 

And in 2004 a set of stamps was issued to commemorate the 75th anniversary of her birth (1929): http://slaniastamps.heindorffhus.dk/mon2004-Grace75-700.jpg

 

Not that I collect stamps, but since they have a Numismatic and Philatelic Office there ... :ninja:

These are the new 2006 Monaco designs. Seems that all coins are available in/from proof sets only.

And those sets (11,180 were issued) are pretty expensive - between 250 and 300 euro. Whew.
