Virgin Money has unveiled a range of anarchy-inciting Sex Pistols themed credit cards.

Three cards, replicating the artwork, of Never Mind the Bollocks and Anarchy in the UK albums have been made available to the public a total of 38 years after the band first signed with Virgin Records.

Richard Branson, Virgin Group founder said: "The Sex Pistols are an iconic band and an important part of Virgin’s history. Virgin Money is a bank that can be proud of its past, and I love the fact that the team have chosen to celebrate it in this way.

"Even after nearly 40 years, the Sex Pistols power to provoke is undimmed, and we are still being asked to censor the word bollocks in our advertising. Over the years many things have changed, but in this case some attitudes clearly do not."

The exclusive cards will not be embossed – as is standard – in order to best display the album artwork.
