ATMs for Gold
The Emirates Palace Hotel Has a Gold-Giving ATM

The Emirates Palace Hotel’s gold-giving ATM is the first one of its kind, giving out 10 gram 24-karat gold bars instead of the usual cash. Abu Dhabi is turning to gold bars to replace money with their gold-dispensing ATMs, blaming the ‘uncertain economic times’ on the switch. To add another level of insanity, the gold bars can be engraved, just to prove your net worth.

The gold-giving ATMs monitor the stock prices of gold, and will dispense amounts accordingly. What store would actually accept gold as a form of payment? And more importantly, what happens if you need change?
