Atlantic City's newest novelty: Gold from a vending machine
The machine spits out silver and gold pieces ranging from five grams to one ounce. It is linked by computer to the precious metals market, so prices are updated every 60 seconds.
As of Thursday, the cheapest item was a $39 Liberty silver coin weighing one ounce. The priciest item was a one-ounce gold Eagle coin costing $1,910.
But accepts Cash Only
ATLANTIC CITY —
The casino that boasts a Gold Rush theme is offering modern-day prospectors a chance to pick up some real gold and silver.
No, they don't have to pan for it in a remote mountain stream, descend deep into some dark, dank mines or rob Fort Knox.
But they will need some cash to make purchases from Atlantic City's newest novelty, a "Gold to Go" machine. The machine made its glitzy debut at Golden Nugget Atlantic City on April 26, when the casino staged a grand opening ceremony to celebrate the completion of its $150 million renovation project.
Loosely resembling a gigantic gold bar, the machine acts like an ATM -- but it dispenses gold and silver coins and trinkets instead of cash. Inscribed on the side of the machine are the words "The gold ATM." It is located in Golden Nugget's atrium, just off the casino floor.

Meh. They already have one at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas, right next to the Hand of God nugget they keep on display.
