** From ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'', we have Quattro Bagina's golden Hyakku-Shiki. It's (supposedly) an anti-beam coating that granted a measure of protection against long-range weapons. Paptimus Scirroco's mobile suit The O is also golden.

*** ''Manga/MobileSuitGundamSEEDAstray'' introduces Rudolf Wittgentsien's GOUF Ignited, which has actual gold applied to its armor via a special nano-treatment. In this case it actually is nothing but a very expensive status symbol.

* ''Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'':
** The Winkie goldsmith, enhancing the Tin Woodsman's axe:
--> another of the Winkies, who was who was a goldsmith, had made an axe-handle of solid gold and fitted it to the Woodman's axe, instead of the old broken handle.
** The Winkies' gifts:
--> the Winkies gave Toto and the Lion each a golden collar; and to Dorothy they presented a beautiful bracelet studded with diamonds; and to the Scarecrow they gave a gold-headed walking stick, to keep him from stumbling; and to the Tin Woodman they offered a silver oil-can, inlaid with gold and set with precious jewels.
** And the Golden Cap, which is presumably golden in some manner, that allows the wearer to summon the Winged Monkeys thrice.
