Does anyone know if Mach 25 patches are still issued to all astronauts who fly or did that end with the space shuttle program?

I don't know the status of the Mach 25 patch at current, but the Soyuz spinoff "MAXA 25" patch continues to be presented, as seen in these photos of Kimiya Yui with Kjell Lindgren and Butch Wilmore with Samantha Cristoforetti.

That is the first I have seen of the MAXA-25 patch with Soyuz capsule instead of a shuttle.

Very cool.

I don't see a MAXA 25 in these pics. It looks like MACH 25 patches.

Indeed, it does look like the "Mach" in the photo with Wilmore, but it still seems appropriate to refer to them as the MAXA 25 patch after the original Soyuz design (linked above).
