A solid gold credit card would weight 2 to 3 oz. and would be very vulnerable to deformation. It would take very little to put a bend in it since gold isn't "springy" and is especially notable for that. You bend it just a bit and it stays bent. It's also heavy and if you drop it it will dent. Permanently.

 

There is something very absurd about this story and I don't think it was meant to be taken seriously.


I wouldn't assume that because news outlets are reporting that it will be "pure" gold that they really mean it will be proof quality.  The card could be made of a gold alloy. 


Most likely gold spray paint from the nearest Lowe's or Home Depot...most likely purchased by the bank using their GE/Lowe's or Citi/HD credit cards... Smiley Tongue
