We introduce the notion of a Y -pattern with coefficients and its geometric counterpart: a cluster 𝒳-variety with coefficients. We use these constructions to build a flat degeneration of every skew-symmetrizable specially completed cluster 𝒳-variety 𝒳^ to the toric variety associated to its g-fan. Moreover, we show that the fibers of this family are stratified in a natural way, with each stratum encoded by Star(τ) for some cone τ of the g-fan. These strata degenerate to the associated toric strata of the central fiber. We further show that the family is cluster dual to 𝒜prin of Gross-Hacking-Keel-Kontsevich, and the fibers cluster dual to 𝒜t. Finally, we give two applications. First, we use our construction to identify the Rietsch-Williams toric degeneration of Grassmannians with the Gross-Hacking-Keel-Kontsevich degeneration in the case of Gr2(5). Next, we use it to link cluster duality to Batyrev-Borisov duality of Gorenstein toric Fanos in the context of mirror symmetry.
