The medal is made of actual steel and feels quite heavy. There’s a code that unlocks Adam Fenix in the multiplayer mode engraved in it.

In conclusion, this is a very nice collector’s edition. It has some pretty unique items, such as the flag and the metal COG, and the box is well suited for displaying on a shelf. It was relatively cheap when it came out, yet the contents are of high quality. A good item.
