How to get gold from an ATM in Abu Dhabi
It was Abu Dhabi that the world's first ATM with gold bars appeared in. It can not be confused with any other - it is covered in paint, gold not only color, but also composition, has a 4 cm armor and a protection system - if the slightest malfunction appears, the ATM stops working.

It started to work in the Emirates Palace Hotel in 2010. Imitators around the world immediately picked up this idea and installed their gold automatic teller machine.

You can buy gold in memory of your trip to Abu Dhabi or as an original gift for a relative.

How to do?

1. Emirates Palace Hotel is located near West Corniche Road, not far from the Corniche seafront promenade .

2. In the vestibule you will see an ATM, covered with gold, which is more like a vending machine. It's easy to get a bar of gold from the automatic teller machine. Look the current price of gold on the display and choose the weight of the bar from the proposed ones - from 1 to 28, 4 grams. Also, there is a gift box option - a gift box with unusual coins, for example, with a maple leaf or a kangaroo. For bars and gold coins, you can pay in cash or by credit card.
