Berlin's First 'Gold To Go' Vending Machine
A hostess holds a ten gram bar of gold bought from Berlin's first Gold To Go gold bar dispenser at Galeries Lafayette on October 21, 2010 in Berlin, Germany. The company Ex Oriente Lux AG is setting up the vending machines across Europe. Customers can buy gold bars weighing between one and 250 grams with cash or a credit card.
