* The Imperial Palace from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. Like most important things in The Imperium, it's decked out in gold, covers more than half of Europe, and is visible from ''Mars''.

* A fairly common trope in various [[ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck Uncle Scrooge]] and DonaldDuck stories. The Gilded Man is far more interested in silver than gold -- while the ducks themselves are actually after a [[MacGuffin rare postage stamp]]. ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales1987''' [[FiveEpisodePilot Valley of Golden Suns]] has a ridiculous amount of gold, while a WesternAnimation/DuckTales comic "The Doomed of Sarras" had an exoplanet with an entire desert of WorthlessYellowRocks. The Uncle Scrooge story "Filthy Rich" features "beggars" in Upper Crustovia with the sign "Please give! Needy family! Down to our last billion dollars!" There have to be many more examples.

* The Golden City of Lanka from HinduMythology, once populated by [[SoiledCityOnAHill decadetent Demons]]and the capital of the infamous Demon King Ravan, until the hero Ram (one of Vishnu's Avatars) deposed him and put his righteous turncoat brother in charge. Sometimes identified with the actual island of Sri Lanka, which used to be famous for being rich in precious stones.

The City Of Gold usually has one of two rather strange sets of local economics. In one, despite the wanton abundance of riches, everyone still considers gold and rubies to be valuable. This can be especially pronounced because the City Of Gold is usually a HiddenElfVillage that isn't trading with the outside world. This usually happens in works aimed at children that can't spend the time on a proper economic lecture on the effects of scarcity or excess on a local economy.

* [[WebComic/{{Homestuck}} Prospit]] is not only a literal yellow dream moon, the citizens are kinder than the ones on Derse and even the prisons are implied to be 'a joke'. One of its OST's is even called 'The Golden Towers'.

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' story "Revenge of the Cybermen" concerns Voga, an ''asteroid'' that's made of gold. The Cybermen want to destroy it, because gold--a metal which never corrodes--can be used to plate their breathing apparatus and suffocate them.


Added DiffLines:

* In the ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'' episode "All That Glitters," Dr. Claw wanted to steal the gold from El Dorado and replace the golden bricks with bricks of gold-plated ''sugar''. [[spoiler: As it turned out, the joke was on him: The gold bricks he was about to steal were actually made of fool's gold! Penny set off a mechanism which destroyed this fake city and revealed the ''true'' City of Gold underneath it!]]
