The SCA word for money.

A metal prized for being ductile, shiny and corrosion-resistant. Valued as precious from ancient times to today (and hence one of the materials Alchemy desired to make).

Used to make a variety of objects eg: gold thread, jewelry, cloth of gold, jewelled items eg book covers, statues, etc

In heraldry, known as Or, the metallic tincture often depicted by the colour yellow.

Chemical symbol Au from the Latin, Aurum meaning shining dawn.
