Shire Silver is a plastic card with precious metal (gold or silver) embedded in the card. That is, the card contains the actual value. The model is public domain so anyone can create their own version. The small amounts, ranging from 5 grams of silver down to .05 grams of gold allow precious metals to be easily used in everyday transactions while fitting well into modern wallets and cash registers.
