Gold was a precious metal. It could be used to fashion jewelery, or turned into forms of currency, like the peggat and the wupiupi. The sashin-leaf mead and the wax secreted by Vashkan apidactyls had a color comparable to that of gold, as did the chromium finish of C-3PO's plating. On Tatooine, water was such a scarce commodity that it was considered to be more valuable than gold. While valuable on some worlds, by the time of the Clone Wars gold was mostly used in manufacturing.
