CREDIT CARD 70TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL EDITION – 2020 1.5 oz (46.47 Grams) Pure Silver Coin – Niue – LIMITED TO 100 MINTAGE
LIMITED COMMEMORATIVE SPECIAL EDITION COIN 70 YEARS OF CREDIT CARD INVENTION.
No cash? Get the coins rolling with the magic card! What seemed like an utopian concept in a late 1800s novel, started to take real form in the first half of the 20th century. The first credit-card-like payment method showed up in 1950 when Ralph Schneider and Frank McNamara founded Diners Club and issued its first cards.
Over the years, credit cards have evolved. Magnetic strips were added, then EMV chips. More than 70% of adults now own at least one credit card, adding up to around 2.8 billion active cards worldwide.
This year we celebrate the 70th anniversary of this revolutionary invention and Artmint decided to take part by creating an exquisite coin imitating a real life credit card. Within the exact measurements conforming to the ISO/IEC 7810 ID-1 it contains every important element – including a magnetic stripe, a real hologram, a chip imitation and it doesn´t lack an area for signature.
You can acquire this spectacular coin in two variations. One made from fine silver that is limited to 500 pieces worldwide. And now.. a special edition credit card coin produced at only 100 pieces worldwide!
Each coin is marked by its individual serial number, ensuring its authenticity. The coin itself is enclosed in an elegant box, including the Certificate.
