No, the Citi Premier Card is not metal. Although Citi Premier is a normal plastic credit card, not made of metal, it does have a neat design, with a gray background featuring a pattern of overlapping circles and Citi’s original logo from 1812. It’s also important to keep in mind that regardless of what it’s made of, Citi Premier is a lucrative rewards card that offers bonus rewards in many different categories. Don’t let the fact that it’s a plastic credit card dissuade you from considering its rewards and features.
Citi does have a different metal credit card, though: the Citi Prestige Card. It’s made out of a metal alloy and weighs 18 grams (compared to around 5 for a plastic credit card). It also has a $495 annual fee.
There are plenty of other metal credit cards to check out from other issuers, too. Some good options in the same price range as Citi Premier include Capital One Venture, Chase Sapphire Preferred, IHG Rewards Club Premier and Capital One Savor.
Metal credit cards have proven to be quite popular, so new options are regularly being introduced. You can find the latest list of metal credit cards below, based on our analysis of WalletHub’s database of 1,000+ credit card offers.
The most prestigious credit cards are the Amex Centurion Card, the J.P. Morgan Reserve Card, and the Citi Chairman Card because all 3 cards are invitation-only. In addition, all 3 cards require applicants to meet high income and/or spending standards for approval.

If you’re looking for a prestigious credit card, but you don’t quite qualify for an invitation from any of these 3 ultra-exclusive credit cards, don’t worry. You might get a better - and less expensive - credit card experience with a normal rewards credit card. Or, a good travel credit card might fit your lifestyle. The best credit cards don’t usually require a million-dollar income or private banking clout, and they still deliver plenty of great perks.
