Need some coin? Next time you go to an ATM machine to take out cash, consider your options. Standard dirty green paper, with old presidents' photos, or shiny new gold! Real gold!
The Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino unveiled the first "Gold to Go" ATM machine in Las Vegas. Only one other exists in the United States, and the Golden Nugget now offers it exclusively to tourists downtown. Simply drop in some dirty old cash, and out comes some shiny new GOLD! Cash is king, so don't expect to pay by debit card. The gold is valued almost instantly and the price fluctuates depending on the exchange rate.
The machine will dispense 24-karat gold bars of various weights ranging between one and 250 grams. Today, one gram sells for approximately $56.00. The vending machine will also sell traditional gold coins and signature gold bars featuring the Golden Nugget logo.

Take a trip down to the Golden Nugget and check it out. While you're there, turn around, and experience the "Hand of Faith". The world's largest golden nugget (behind thick glass, and well protected) is home here too!
