Europe's first gold vending machines operational in Madrid and Milan

European opening for GOLD to go®

(PresseBox) (Reutlingen / Madrid / Milan, ) The first two European GOLD to go® vending machines went into operation today in two locations.

Following the global opening that took place this summer in the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi, the world innovation has now been put into service at the first European sites. The exclusive Westin Palace Hotel in Madrid, Spain, and the international airport in Bergamo, Italy, have gained an extra highlight with the GOLD to go® vending machines.

The new vending machine from TG Gold-Super-Markt, a brand of Ex Oriente Lux AG, installed at the two locations features cutting-edge technology. In addition to 1 g, 5 g and 10 g bars of gold, the machine also dispenses gold coins bearing designs such as Krugerrand, Maple Leaf and Kangaroo, which are sold in gift boxes at real-time prices. Following the huge success of the world's first gold vending machine in Abu Dhabi, it is the turn of the two European locations. Now, at the exclusive hotel in the Spanish metropolis and at the transport hub just outside Milan, too, GOLD to go® will be perceived as an extra special gift idea, combining the joy of giving with an investment in a precious metal - physical gold is, after all, still a wise addition to an individual's financial portfolio.

The Westin Palace in Madrid is one of the most exclusive addresses in the world. This makes the hotel just the right place for the GOLD to go® machine - what souvenir could better represent a stay in such a luxurious hotel than a coin or bar made of pure gold? "A stay in an excellent establishment quite simply deserves a very special souvenir," says Thomas Geissler, CEO of Ex Oriente Lux AG. He adds: "What could be more exclusive than a gift of pure gold?"

It is not only in the exclusive environment of a superior hotel that guests will want to find an extra special souvenir. Many air-travellers enjoy spending the time they have at the airport looking for an appropriate, worthwhile gift for loved-ones back home. At the GOLD to go® vending machine at the airport in Bergamo, they can now choose a valuable gift to match their individual needs and make a fully uncomplicated purchase.

A computer inside the machine ensures that the real-time prices are updated in line with the online shop at This eliminates the risk premiums usually associated with precious metal trading. As no sales staff are needed to operate the machine, clients benefit from competitive prices. All of the gold bars sold are 24 carat and every item comes with a moneyback guarantee. It has never been easier for individuals to purchase gold bars and coins in guaranteed quality quickly, simply and conveniently at fair prices.

The gold vending machine therefore offers private investors an opportunity to top up their gold caches. With their sophisticated packaging, the gold products from the machine are also ideal as special gifts with long-term value.
