World’s first gold vending machine

Emirates PalaceThe world’s first gold vending machine is now enticing tourists in Abu  Dhabi where the Gold to go has found a home in the uber-luxurious setting  of Emirates Palace – one of the world’s most opulent hotels. Gold to go  dispenses ten specially-designed 24 carat gold bars in various  designs, such as the Kangaroo, Maple Leaf and Krugerrand in denominations  of one, five and ten grams, as well as one tenth, a quarter and one ounce  of gold.  The machine offers real time prices, eliminating the risks associated with precious metal  trading. Plans to  increase the number of gold bar vending machines to include airport  terminals, shopping centres and hotels, are underway.
