Standard Chartered Bank (Singapore) jointly issued these Visa Cash cards with First Union Bank (USA). Issued for use at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and as a commemorative collectors edition set. Note that the cards on this page are set number 401 of 5,000 sets. Numbering for each card is sequenced by 5. So the first card in the set is numbered 000401 then 005401, 010401 etc.
When sold the Visa Cash cards contained a face cash value of $540, a very expensive set of cards if one did not spend the value. It is unknown how many sets were actual sold by the two banks and how many were sold. It is know that a number of sets were sold to dealers without the value (the expiry date had passed) or stripped of the value. It is also not know why the cards were approved by the bank with the very noticeable bleeding printing problem on the back of the each card in the set. Also note that value denomination for each card is in US dollars.
