CS:GO is more famously known for the massive cosmetics market that’s grown up around it in recent years, but now plans have been announced that will allow long-time players to gain some real-life loot. Players who have been around for five years have earned the in-game Five Year Veteran coin, and now they will be able to buy an actual physical coin to display somewhere in their rooms and prove to everyone just how much of a gamer they are.
To be eligible players must sign into the Valve Store with their Steam account that has the coin in their inventory. Once it has confirmed that the player has the in-game item, the gaming veteran will then be allowed to order the coin for $45. An account does need to be in good standing to receive this option as well, so cheaters will not be eligible no matter how long they were playing before they were caught. Worldwide shipping is free, but there might be a charge for import duty or VAT for the gamer to pay when their coin reaches them. A few places are also not open for orders including Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Philippines, Burma, Syria and Sudan; otherwise you should be good.
The coin comes with a fancy looking wooden box, a display stand and a box sleeve with the Five Year Veteran logo stamped upon it. Orders will begin shipping in mid-June and Valve are planning to manufacture more once more players reach the Five Year mark.
Who knows? Maybe in another few years when the first Ten Year Veteran players get their in-game coin, we’ll see Valve releasing a Ten Year physical coin for purchase.
