A yellow precious metal.
A precious metal valued for its monetary value. It has many uses, in the production of jewellery, coinage, sculpture, vessels and as a decoration for buildings, monuments and statues. Gold, especially in YGGDRASIL, was invaluable for its use in funding the various game systems, such as crafting, dungeons, NPCs, resurrections, etc. The metal was distributed throughout the game via various monsters available for players to contend with.
- One gold coin is equivalent to 100,000 yen.
- YGGDRASIL's monetary system made use of pure gold in its coinage, whereas the gold coins used by the nations of the New World had only a fraction.
- In the New World, 3 gold coins were enough to feed a normal family for a whole month.
