Gold is a precious metal used as a monetary standard and in jewellery; in many societies it signifies wealth, status, and luxury. The colour adjective golden has taken on some of the positive connotations of the substance. The value of gold has resulted in the meaning `successful' or `prosperous' in phrases like a golden age, denoting a thriving period in history in a particular field. Closely related to this, a golden opportunity is one which is promising and advantageous. Gold symbolizes winning first place in a race, as in a gold medal, which has led people to be described as golden boys or golden girls when they are prized and popular.
