China is the worlds second largest bullion consumer and now getting more gold in China could be as easy as buying a bag of chips.

Gold vending machines are already installed in Britian, The US, the Middle East and Europe.

No word on why the Chinese are late to the party.

Shoppers can buy up to 5.5 pounds of gold from the machines.  The plan is to put the machines in secure locations like gold shops and upmarket private clubs.
