Default difference between Gold Record Card and Record Card

Is there a difference between the Record Card given to me when I
purchased a travel card earlier today and the Gold Record Card which I
received when purchasing the ticket last year?

The Gold Record Card is used to get discounts you would have been entitled
to if you had bought a paper annual travelcard.

The normal Record Card serves no function but would come in handy if your
Oyster card stopped working and you wanted to prove you have a valid
ticket. Even though it has "NOT VALID FOR TRAVEL" written across it.

The Gold record card is for annual travelcards only and gives you various
benefits such as 1/3 off off-peak rail fares in the South East.

But what I purchased was an annual travelcard (just as it has been in
previous years) so is there something about buying travel cards on
Oyster that means I don't get a Gold Record Card anymore?

No, it just means the clerk put the wrong stock in the printer...
