    This gold Putin edition iPhone 5s will set you back a cool $4,360



    Unless someone’s *ahem* Putin us on, this 18-carat gold plated iPhone 5s featuring the visage of Russia’s controversial president is currently selling for around $4,363.

    Called the Caviar iPhone 5s Supremo Putin, it is the work of luxury jewellery house Perla Penna, and is available only in Russia.

    In addition to an etching of Vladimir Putin, the phone case is accompanied by the Russian coat of arms, along with the first two lines of the Russian national anthem.

    “The most powerful person according to Forbes and Time – President Putin has come to symbolize the new generation, the leader of will and resolution,” says Perla Penna, describing the so-called Putinphone as the “best expression of patriotism.”

    Putin is the latest in a series of iconic figures to wind up as etchings on luxury Perla Penna iPhones — with previous choices including Leonardo de Vinci, Mohammed Ali, and Steve Jobs.

    Of course, given that the iPhone 6 is on its way, one wonders about the logic of shelling out more than $4,000 for a soon-to-be-superceded iPhone. Unless the Putin iPhone 5s decides to run another term that is.
