* Auru of ''Webcomic/{{Plume}}'' used to be this, with people wearing golden jewelry and clothes with golder threads, and gold decorating pretty much everything around. By the time Magnus Gray and his party reach it, though, it's just mud-covered ruins.

* One of the secrets in ''{{Spelunky}}'' is a series of trades that can lead a careful explorer to the City of Gold. In this legendary version of level 15, each tile can be bombed for gold, and there is a gigantic statue that can be bombed for gold and jewels. The statue is missing in the HD remake, and in its place lies the [[TomeOfEldritchLore Necronomicon]], which opens a secret door allowing access to the BrutalBonusLevel and TrueFinalBoss.

* In ''{{Spellsinger}}'', Jon-Tom and Mudge stumble into an underground community of moles and gophers, who build their tunnels' floors and other civic accoutrements out of gold and gemstones. Jon-Tom promises that they'll leave empty-handed and keep quiet about it, provided they let the otter go and don't execute him for stealing paving-stones.

* Literature/TheCulture of Iain M. Banks is a [[TheSingularity Post-Scarcity utopia]], where [[WorthlessYellowRocks even the fancier things are free for everyone]], but things that people value enough to trade for them still exist, though mostly immaterial, like the right to be at a particular concert, by Banks' own favorite example.

* The Mali Empire in west Africa was an excellent example around the 14th century. It's estimated that ''half'' of the gold in circulation in the old world at the time came from Mali. When the emperor Mansa Musa made a pilgrimage to Mecca in the mid-14th century he brought along so much gold -- and spent and donated so lavishly -- that he actually devastated the Mediterranean economy for a decade due to runaway inflation. (To his credit he recognized the problem and bought up as much gold as possible in Cairo to try and reduce the supply.)
