>Gold bars vending machine
Vending machines that dispense bars of gold have been unveiled at Frankfurt Airport, Germany. Shoppers can buy gold as easily as bars of chocolate. Gold prices from the machines, named Gold To Go (see photo), are about 30% higher than market prices. Shoppers receive a certificate of authenticity after their purchase. As the credit crunch continues to bite, more and more people in Europe prefer to hold personal wealth in gold.
德国法兰克福机场破天荒推出一台名为Gold To Go的黄金自助贩卖机(见图)，买金条就像买巧克力条般容易。贩卖机里的黄金价格比市场价高出30%。所有经贩卖机售出的金条，均附有"真品证明书"。在经济衰退时期，欧洲越来越多人买黄金保值。
