Gold is an element that is constantly being turned to as "formal currency". Gold has never really declined in value over the ages. Gold is also the opposite of silver, much like [fire] is the opposite of ice , both are a type of rock.
How is gold produced?
Well, gold is produced when god, or Cthulhu, or whatever else on earth has the power to extract it from the not so important element lead. Humans are then left with the task of extracting the gold ore from the earth. They often do this using magical spells and digging machines.
