Gold and Co iPhone
British luxury products company, Gold and Co, has revealed that it has an order from the federal government to deliver 53 customised gold iphones for the celebration of the 53rd independence anniversary on October 1.
The founder of Gold and Co, Amjad Ali, was quoted as telling the United Kingdom’s Independent Newspaper that the Nigerian government had made an order of “53 gold iPhones to mark the country’s 53rd year of independence from Britain next month.”
Ali said the order from the federal government was that the iPhones “will be engraved with Nigeria’s coat of arms, a shield and two horses.”
Ali’s Gold and Co. clients include royal families, governments and wealthy individuals from across the world.
A gold-plated device costs between £3,000 and £50,000 (N750,000 to N12.5 million).
The order from the government with its customised coat of arm is believed to be among the constant premium orders the company gets.
The London-based company recently received an order from the Saudi Arabia royal family for “a gold iPhone studded with hundreds of diamonds, including a giant piece that served as the device’s ‘home’ button.”
