Bank Issues Gold Card — With Real Gold

http://youtu.be/VrsvOD65xtA

MOSCOW — American Express may call one of its cards the Gold Card, but a bank in Kazakhstan is announcing plans to issue an exclusive new bank card it claims is the world’s first made entirely of gold, diamonds and pearls.

Sberbank-Kazakhstan announced plans to issue a limited edition Visa Infinite Exclusive cards, made with pure gold, 26 diamonds, and inlaid mother of pearl, according to a press release posted on the bank’s website.

The bank also produced a video highlighting the card’s luxurious components.

A spokeswoman for the bank told ABC News it will cost $100,000 to obtain the gold card. About $65,000 of that goes into minting the card itself (customers will receive a plastic version as well), and the remaining $35,000 will remain in the user’s account.

If I had that kind of $ to throw around,

I'd just go and buy 58 Ounces of gold.lol

I'd rather use a real gold card

One that works like a debit card and spends/saves like physical gold.

Can't put it in your wallet

Can't put it in your wallet or sit on it otherwise it would bend and warp.
