N26 Introduces Metal Card for 'Global Generation'


The world is now closer and more connected than ever. Yet we still have a desire for the physical—items that you can hold and call your own.

Out of these two opposites comes N26 Metal—a card designed to feel, look, and act differently. N26 Metal is the result of hours of refining, distilling and applied design. It embodies the best of unique, physical design and the ambition for new experiences and horizons.

Put concretely, N26 Metal is a stunning card—representing the best of our unique style—that is paired with exclusive offers from curated partners, preferred Customer Support, and comprehensive travel insurance.

This card takes you places while maintaining that unique connection to the moment.

The beauty is in the details: the design behind N26 Metal

“We really wanted a card that felt different. When we first started drafting and prototyping the design of the physical card itself, we knew that would define the ultimate end product—that the benefits would fall right into place,” says Taryn Niesena, the chief designer of the Metal card.

With Metal, we’ve created two firsts: our first metal core card and Europe’s first metal core card with contactless payment abilities. Its tungsten core weighs 18 grams, making it three times heavier than standard cards.

That makes a difference. It’s a noticeable weight—you’ll feel it in your pocket and others will notice when you plunk it onto the table. It connects purpose with occasion: “The metal core is really the heart of the card. We didn’t want just another metal card though, we wanted something distinctly N26,” continues Taryn Niesena.

Connecting style to substance: a whole new, custom Metal experience

Metal quickly became a card designed to represent a new kind of identity—a group of global-minded people who want to live well and remain connected to the world without sacrificing or compromising their desires.

When we started to think about what you and other customers value, we realized it’s often N26’s unique feeling of “space.” N26 gives you access to all your finances in one, easy-to-use app.

We took this principle and created a new, personalized “N26 Metal” section for the app. Here, you can find all their benefits in one space. And there are many—Metal gives you the same comprehensive travel and purchase coverage of Black.

On top of that, we’ve partnered with innovative brands to bring you discounts and exclusive offers. Combined with preferred Customer Support, Metal sets the stage for you to explore the world while giving you the help you need while doing so.

Get a preview now—exclusive early access for N26 Black customers

Metal is launching in limited quantities for existing N26 Black users in Germany, Austria, France, and Italy. You are really the inspiration for everything we do here. Upgrading now will give you access to all of Metal’s new in-app features. But due to high demand, shipping may take a few weeks. Don’t worry though—you’ll continue to pay the same price until the card is in your hands.

We’re proud to finally announce N26 Metal to you. And with it, a whole new way to define what’s essential to you and us.
