There’s no market rating for these. In the Army, I just got an orange tag for my uniform and a cert.
Now in the private sector, I received $3000 holidays and gold, plus a crystal trophy for 10 years’ service. 15 years might be changed to a branded watch or pen etc depending on the boss.

Your current Company Long Services Awards is very premium, and Company had a good budget for it, why not? Below is the example long services awards that you may want to refer and I believe is reasonable to both employer and employee.

- 5 years: $ 500
- 10 years: $1,000
- 15 years: $1,500
- 20 years: $2,000
- 25 years: $2,500
