While green may be the color of money (U.S. money, that is) gold is the color of riches and extravagance.

The color gold shares many of the attributes of yellow.

It is a warm color that can be both bright and cheerful as well as somber and traditional.

Because gold is a precious metal, the color gold is associated with wealth and prosperity.

While all that glitters is not gold the color gold still suggests grandeur, and perhaps on the downside, the excesses of the rich.
