Kazakhstan's oligarchs now have a novel new way to flaunt their wealth, with the launch of a solid gold, diamond-encrusted Visa credit card.
Russia's Sberbank is handing the Visa Infinite Exclusive cards - made of pure gold, with pearl embossing and 26 diamonds - to its top 100 customers in the energy-rich country.
The card can be used for chip and PIN transactions but, with no mag-stripe, owners will have to carry a regular piece of plastic if they want to get at their fortune via an ATM.
According to ABC News, the card will cost $100,000, of which $65,000 is needed to mint it, with the rest added to its balance.
Sberbank and Visa are actually four years behind MasterCard and Kazkommertsbank, which introduced their own diamond-encrusted card in bling-enamoured Kazakhstan back in 2008.
