Gold is a luxury resource that can be found on Hills, Deserts and plains. It gives +2 Gold to the tile but doesn't raise the tile's production. The mine that is used to access the gold however raises the tile's production by 1.
Gold is a soft, shiny, malleable metal that does not rust or tarnish. It has been prized by men and women throughout history. It is a rare metal, and its rarity, along with its resistance to corrosion, greatly adds to its value. Although it has some industrial, (mainly electronics), dental and medicinal uses, historically, gold has been used primarily as coinage, jewelry or for decorative purposes. It adorns books, utensils, buildings and the commodes of the super-rich and powerful.
