The rarest credit card in the world is likely the Centurion® Card from American Express, also known as the “Black Card.” This card is available by invitation only, and you will reportedly need to spend at least $250,000 per year on other Amex credit cards and have an income of $1 million+ to get it.
The annual fee is also a staggering $5000, and there’s a one-time $10,000 initiation fee. Because of the strict requirements and high costs, the card is very rare and only in the wallets of very rich individuals.
