Brickset has published the following information from La Prensa:

Building facilities in the Panama Canal Administration will be released the first set of commemorative pieces of Lego Panama, celebrating the expansion of the Canal.

The initial idea was proposed by Lorena Degracia, founder of Panama STEM Education, the administrator of the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) , Jorge Quijano.

With a production run of just 40,000 and a price tag of $250, this set is unlikely to be cheap on the secondary market.
