ICBC Palace Museum Co-branded Debit Card is jointly released by ICBC and Palace Museum and issued with official authorization of the latter.
It comes in five forms: "dream", "spring", "summer", "autumn" and "winter". With the theme of "invigorating traditional Chinese culture", the buildings and cultural relics of Palace Museum are applied on card faces to showcase profound Chinese culture. Coupled with advanced card make techniques, a debit card with elegant visual effect, exquisite crafts, outstanding appearance and good implication is created. In this way, traditional culture is integrated into common people's life.
Dream card: themed around "pursuit of dreams", it is inspired by "Qing-dynasty filigree enamel wine goblet in deer pattern" collected in Palace Museum. Deer chase butterflies that symbolize "ancient Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi dreamt of becoming a butterfly". Running deer symbolize unremitting efforts to realize dreams and good implication of happiness and wealth.
Spring card: themed around "lucky cranes flying high in the sky", "Qing-dynasty Emperor Yongzheng-period bowl with yellow glaze, green color and white cranes" collected in Palace Museum and the pattern of Meridian Gate of Palace Museum are combined to form the card face. Auspicious cranes fly high in the sky to greet spring, implying a positive and upbeat attitude.
