Valve is offering you the opportunity to buy a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive ‘Five Year Veteran Coin’ for just $45. There is one small catch though, you have to have earned the coin in game as well before you will be allowed to buy the real thing.
The coin is made from die cast zinc alloy with the number 5 emblazoned on the front in copper. It is 63mm in diameter and 3mm thick, and weighs just under 56 grammes. It comes in a box with an acrylic cover that can be hung on a wall or if you prefer you can display it in the included acrylic coin stand.
According to the FAQ, you must meet the following criteria
- The user must have owned a copy of any Counter-Strike game for more than five years without interruption (and currently own CS:GO)
- The user’s account must be in good standing (no VAC bans)
If you have managed to earn the coin in the game and want a real life coin, head over to the Valve Store. While the coins will ship to most of the world, Valve won’t be shipping them to Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Philippines, Burma, Syria and Sudan. The coins will start shipping in mid-June.
