Now that's a REAL gold card!

The Royal Mint has produced its first payment card, which is made from solid gold.

The 18-carat hallmarked debit cards will be personalized for account holders 'who value high-quality luxury items that make a statement'.

People wanting to get their hands on one need to pay £18,750 for a card - and for bespoke and personalized designs the costs will be even higher.

They have been developed by the Mint in conjunction with Mastercard and payments technology firm Accomplish Financial.
The Mastercard cards, which are part of an account called Raris, will be personalised for customers, with their name and signature directly engraved into the precious metal.
