German firm plans gold ATMs to meet growing demand

By Peter Starck FRANKFURT, May 19 (Reuters) - Private investors should hold up to 15 percent of their wealth in physical gold, according to a German asset management company which plans to set up 500 'Gold-To-Go' ATMs in Germany, Switzerland and Austria this year.

A gold-dispensing automatic teller machine (ATM) was on display at Frankfurt's main railway station for a one-day marketing test on Tuesday.

the start of the boom, or the end of the bubble?

I had an idea for a vending machine that sold human livers.

Stick your soon to be worthless Euros in a vending machine and get gold instead

This could only happen in Germany

How long before the German people demand the return of the Mark

They have been totally screwed over by their politicians

The Euro is now doomed IMO.

These machines better be somewhere very secure.

I'd be happy if the Germans brought back those vending machines that sold you a packet of fags for three five-pence pieces.

if there's enough to put in vending machines in train stations - doesn't this kind of blow a hole in the 'scarcity' 'myth'?

(ooh, off-topic tick tock clock..)

That 30% premium is a kicker.

But the O.P. is right - once something gets into the public psyche, it sticks and multiplies, and the concept that money is becoming worthless might REALLY take off soon.

I think I read a few weeks back that the ECB was gearing up for QE.

If that happens this could take off bigtime.

No, this is a cunning trick concocted by Axel Weber.

Get the German sheeple to believe hyperinflation is coming back, so they support the Bundesbank "no more rate cuts and no QE" policy :lol:
