Gold Vending machine

Here it is ... the first gold vending machine in the US. Saw it yesterday. Two people there assisting buyers and answering questions. I saw at least 6 transactions in just a couple of minutes - and that's cash only.

From the local news First gold vending machine in U.S. opens for business at Town Center mall in Boca Raton - Sun Sentinel

I think I'll stick to the state lottery vending machines, although the gold machines would give my plan additional diversification

Must have nice margins to employ two people just to help people use the vending machine!

Right. That has happened in this mall parking lot and another one about 25-30 miles away (Sawgrass) where lots of tourists shop and a fair amount of electronics are bought.

Dang!

All I know is I sold my 100 shares of GLD in May 2010 for a mere $119/share and it is now $134. It's too bad I don't have any left.
