Is AMEX gold is Metal now?

This may have been discussed multiple times, but is AMEX Gold a Metal card now? I had PRG long time back and cancelled the card. Recently just got approved for the Gold card and was wondering if it is metal card now. Back when i used to have it, was plastic. Also do they send the card via UPS just like Platinum ?

Not as hefty as their Platinum big brothers but personal and business Gold cards are both now metal.

Not certain how they are sent.
