Gold Coast Trial Cards

 

Visa launched its public demonstration of Stored Value Cards (SVCs) on November 15, 1995 on the Gold Coast of Australia. Five financial institutions participated in the SVC Pilot: ANZ Bank, Commonwealth Bank (CBA), CUSCAL (Credit Union), National Australia Bank (NAB) and Westpac Banking corporation. The Disposable cards were issued with pre-set values of $5, $20 and $50. The obverse card designs were standardized. The reverse designs carry logos from all five participating financial institutions and each bank's unique identification number. Therefore, there are 15 different cards in the Gold Coast "set" of Pilot (Trial) cards. A limited edition of 1,000 sets were produced, with cards from varying institutions, in a special edition Folder. Each institution also issued their own Trial cards, with their own logo, some in limited edition folders (see sections of individual institutions).
