Suddenly out of gold, and out of reach of your trusty gold bullion dealer? In America, these problems get fixed once they get realized. And apparently the problem has been realized. Las Vegas and Florida will get these awesome, or awesomely terrifying, ATMs that dispense gold bars ranging in size from 1 to 28 grams, plus international coins, in the next year.
A German company manufactures the “Gold to Go” machines, which started in Abu Dhabi, of course, and are expected to roll out to even more locations in the U.S., presumably based on various urban needs for gold bars. Can we get a purse for this?
