World’s First Credit Card Made Entirely Of Gold, Diamonds And Pearls
By John Yong, 01 Nov 2012
Russia’s Sberbank in Kazakhstan has announced plans to issue an exclusive new credit card—which the bank claims to be the world’s first bank card to be made entirely of gold, diamonds and pearls.
Called ‘Visa Infinite Exclusive’, this limited edition card will be made with “pure gold, 26 diamonds and inlaid mother of pearl”.
It was reported that it will cost US$100,000 to obtain the card—with $65,000 going into minting the card, and the balance will remain in the user’s accounts.
With its hefty price tag, cardholders can look forward to top tier benefits and privileges—such as life and health insurance worth over $250,000, lounge access at airports, concierge services, discounts at hotels and restaurants, car hires and more.
The bank will also provide new cardholders with a free iPhone 5 and a Montblanc card case.
With this ‘gold card’, maybe you can finally afford those gold-plated Nike shoes.
