These are special orders for shops. "Supposedly" there are only 1,000 bound for North America, but I dont really buy that, unless they are all serial numbered, which is unlikely if it is only $485 (Doesnt make sense to make them that exclusive and charges less than $1000, its not worth their time and money invest in this project). They are retailing for $485 or so. They are 18k gold plated.
In terms of who has them? Probably smaller boutique type shops. I don't know if I can find out who has them, but if you go into a store who has a Ray-Ban display case (usually means they push through a lot of inventory) they should be able to order it for you. BUT it might be a very limited run where not every store can get them. Mind you, if they order it in for you, you will have to take it regardless of if you like it or not.
BUT, IMO, if you are looking for gold plated try looking into Mont Blanc frames. Some of their sunglasses have glass lenses. Also, they come in yellow gold plated and also white gold plated. Quality is quite good too, better than most in that price range. I think they are pretty classy and also timeless classic styles.
