The world’s first gold vending machine is at Emirates Palace

- Nicole Humphries-Voorhoeve, Guest Blogger

It seems only fitting that the global launch of GOLD took place at Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi. After all, the property has been referred to as the “golden hotel” since its opening five years ago.

This particular vending machine is a 24 carat gold-plated masterpiece developed by TG Gold-Super-Markt, a brand of Ex Oriente Lux AG. Not only can travelers get 1g, 5g, and 10g bars of gold, but also gold coins bearing designs like Krugerrand, Maple Leaf, and Kangaroo… if you’re into that kind of thing.

“GOLD to go” combines the act of giving with an investment in a precious metal, since physical gold is still one of the most sustainable forms of investment.

No sales staffs are needed to operate the machine, so clients benefit from competitive prices. All of the gold bars sold are 24 carat and every item comes with a money-back guarantee.

“The opportunity to include Emirates Palace gold coins from the gold vending machine will be available soon, so whether you are an investor, luxury traveler, or a visitor to this iconic landmark of Abu Dhabi, it is simply the perfect gift”, said Janet Abrahams, Executive Director of Sales & Marketing Emirates Palace.

If a gold vending machine sounds like the kind of thing you’d would like to try out, here are a few luxury hotel options in Abu Dhabi:
