Is anyone capable of updating flown vs. unflown, silver vs. gold populations for space shuttle and International Space Station Robbins medals?

Here is an updated list. Robbins has not produced any shuttle medallions since STS-116, and I was unable to get those numbers.

Is it the first time that there is such a long gap in production/updates? It's a bit worrying...

It is to my knowledge. I had heard they were going to catch up on missions this past July, but it hasn't happened yet.

It's anecdotal at best, but I heard from a reliable source that an STS-118 Robbins was seen "in the wild," but that is the only post-STS-116 medal I've heard being out there.

We also have an astronaut's report that they are no longer flying struck medals, but ingots to be struck post flight.

It seems the ISS 20 Robbins Medallion is currently the latest one produced.

I don't have population numbers, but the most recent shuttle Robbins I have seen is STS-129.

Do STS-133, STS-134 and STS-135 Robbins exist and anyone know if that may become available?

Any update on the status of the last three medallions?

I heard from an STS-135 crew member about a month ago that their medals had just then been delivered to them.
