Long attracted to the safety of solid gold, Germans will soon be able to sate their appetite for the yellow metal as easily as buying a chocolate bar after plans were announced on Tuesday to install gold vending machines in airports and railway stations across the country.

...

"German investors have always preferred to hold a lot of personal wealth in gold, for historical reasons. They have twice lost everything," said Thomas Geissler, the owner of the company, who hopes to install "Gold to go" machines in 500 locations in German-speaking countries this year.

"Gold is a good thing to have in your pocket in uncertain times."
