This was the last one I have seen:

 
Set No: 40406  Name: Monthly Mini Model Build Set - 2020 12 December, Human Rights Day Dove polybag
* 
40406-1 Monthly Mini Model Build Set - 2020 12 December, Human Rights Day Dove polybag
2020
Sets: LEGO Brand: LEGO Brand Store: Monthly Model

I know here in the States, once a month a child under 14 could register to build
these at local LEGO stores. They came with a build card. This ceased in March
of 2019 with the Viking ship model/card. But obviously the mini builds continued
being manufactured but no more "in-store" building (even before COVID).

But I haven't seen once released for Jan. 2021 or now Feb. 2021...have they
been finally discontinued after 10 years?

Thanks for any info.

I haven't seen them since mid 2019 when they ended the instore ones. Were
the recent ones still given away or was it just instructions available that kept
them alive?
