New Keys for a W-140

I am picking up my newly-purchased 97 S-500 today, and the dealer is ordering two new keys (only one exists now) for me at $90 a piece. I have heard there are different kinds of keys (i.e. valet), but don't know what the differences are from regular keys. Is this an appropriate price, and where can I find out more about the different keys?

2012 E350 4matic Sport P1
Previously 1997 S-500 Silver/Black and 1985 C190 (or something like that in London)

$90/pc is the main key (big bulky one)

Valet key is a slim thin key which you can use to open the car and trunk but not start the car. This should cost relatively cheap.
