    Bad Link, but I think you are talking about the medallion that shows the number of new Cadillacs that person has purchased new, Thier is a discussion about them here.

    I've never had one personally, Just think it is something unique that Cadillac does to recognize repeat customers who buy more then one new Cadillac in their lifetime

    Still...It is cadillacs way of thanking its customers...For the older caddies you would get the Gold Keys and salesman would reguest for you to get the gold medallion for the purchase. Once you bought one every other caddy purchase you get a new meadllion with the number caddy you have purchased. If you look close to the ebay auction you mentioned above i belive its number I (roman numerals)...hope this helps clearify the meaning..

    Its a Heritage of Ownership badge. The newer Lacs have a silver one, but its ugly if you ask me. Like everyone said it signifies how many Lacs you've owned.

    Id personally like a set of gold keys for my 95 eldorado. Any idea if a dealer could sell me a set? Any idea where else I could get a set?

    Your car will have VATS (the chip in the key) so a plain key will be like $100. A gold one could cost twice that if they don't have many in stock.

    wonder if theyd sell me a gold blank? Get it cut at any key cutting type place and cut out a boss for the vats chip then slide out of old key and into new key. Just an idea. If i can even get a gold caddy blank.
