The Red Diamond Play Button is a special award by YouTube given to channels who reach 100,000,000 (100 million) subscribers. There are currently only four YouTube channels that have received this award, that being of YouTuber PewDiePie, the Indian music label T-Series, Cocomelon and SET India.
To celebrate your achievements YouTube created the YouTube Creator Awards. … 100,000 Subscribers – Silver Play Button. 1,000.000 Subscribers – Gold Play Button. 10,000.000 Subscribers – Diamond Play Button.
To get the very first plaque, you need to get 100,000 subscribers. After crossing this milestone, the channel owner is presented with a silver Play button as a reward.
Some creators have claimed that they received a bronze play button after reaching 100 subscribers, but they made this button themselves. While you do not get a bronze play button at 100 subscribers, you do become eligible to create a custom URL for your channel, which is arguably more useful to your channel’s success.

Receiving a YouTube Play Button award
So here is the bad news: There is no such thing as a 1,000 subscribers Play Button award! (By the way, there is no award if your channel hits 10,000 subscribers either.) In YouTube terms, 10K subscribers still make for a pretty small channel.
