Midtown Manhattan’s Gold ATM

Even though it was to London which the Dick Whittington referral was made about streets being paved with gold, that was the 19th century.  Perhaps now the reference could be changed to Manhattan.  Because in Midtown Manhattan, there is now an ATM that dispenses…gold!  The Stack’s Bowsers Gold-to-go ATM is located on West 57th Street.  Users (with money of course) can access gold through this machine with their credit card or cash.  One ounce gold bars are “retailing” here for approximately $1,300.  For those with less money to spare, 10 gram bars are on “sale” for around $490 and 5 gram bars for $255, subject to market fluctuations. And it’s not just gold.  Silver lovers can buy their coins too, together with a commemorative Bronx Zoo silver coins and pieces. 

The machine was purchased a couple of years ago by Andrew Bowers from TG-Gold-Super-Markt.  At the time, the US only had two others like it – one in Vegas and the other in Atlantic City.  So for those who find themselves walking around the city that never sleeps, here is yet another attraction to keep them entertained!
