Pins were used as awards up until 2008. The explanation for how the program operated can be found on pinpics, paraphrased here...
For each quarter that a cast member achieved the incentive requirements, he/she would receive a pin. Only a handful of awards were given out to the top performers. First an S, then a T, an A, and finally R. The following year, the process started over.
The letter S pin featured either Goofy or Daisy. Pluto was on the T. Tinker Bell or Mickey alternated on the A (the letter was represented by a star), and the R had either Donald or Jiminy Cricket.
This Tinker Bell is the Gold Star award. Used from 2006-2008.

In 2008, the pin portion of the program ended and was replaced by medallions. Snow White showed up in the fourth quarter of 2013. She's pictured on the face of a coin celebrating the New Fantasyland at Walt Disney World. The package illustration depicts the artist rendering of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.
Other medallions from the past few years:
- 2012 Bronze - Space Mountain (Disneyland Resort Travel Services Company - DRTSC).
- 2013 Bronze, Second Quarter - New Fantasyland Dumbo (WDW Disney Reservation Center).
- 2014 Bronze, Second Quarter - Sleeping Beauty (WDW Disney Reservation Center).
