The Card Co. Dubai Strikes Gold with Exclusive Krugerrand Wedding Invitation
Posted by Chris Connor on Sun, 22 Apr 2012
Pioneer of prestigious occasion stationery The Card Co. Dubai is causing a stir with the announcement that the team behind Dubai’s most bespoke wedding accessories are designing and producing a wedding invitation with a difference – one featuring none other than a solid 22 carat gold Krugerrand coin.
Introduced in 1970, the Krugerrand was a world first and is considered as the original gold bullion coin. More than 54 million gold Krugerrands have been circulated worldwide, and today the coin remains one of the most in demand pieces for collectors and investors. In fact, the coin was so popular that it led numerous other nations to mint their own bullion coins, such as the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf in 1979, the Australian Nugget in 1981, the American Gold Eagle in 1986 and the British Britannia coin. The move is set to be a real game changer for the market newcomer, which produces handcrafted occasion stationery and accents from its luxury showroom in the DIFC.
“This is a really exciting development for the Card Co.,” claims company owner and CEO Ramzi Razian. “The Krugerrand is one of the most popular pieces of gold in the world today, and we’re proud to be including it in one of our bespoke wedding invitations. This invitation is a real investment – it has a real value just like money in the bank, only it increases in value over time rather than depreciates. This piece is a long-lasting heirloom that can be passed down to future generations – it’s something very special. We’re really proud of what we’re doing here, and hope this will be a major coup for the company and cement our position at the forefront of high-end wedding stationary in Dubai.”
Hailing from South Africa, the coin weighs approximately 35 grams and is denominated in ounces of pure gold rather than having a face value. This means that its worth can be easily determined from the internationally quoted gold price. The Krugerrand is recognised worldwide, making it the perfect choice for the Card Co.’s latest venture.
