    Try the RGB settings of:

    R = 255
    G = 215
    B = 0

    A better response is "What color is gold?" Or would that be 14K, 18K, or 24K?

    You might want to look at the Fill Effects options. Choose Preset and opt
    for Gold I or Gold II.

  5. I won't repeat what others have said - so I assume you read everything
    before reading this.

    It all depends on several factors - first of all, "Gold" as such is a
    simulated color that is not part of the color depth that computers use.

    Such simulation can provide different results - a particular shade of Gold
    looks better on a red background or not - something else probably looks
    better on a blue background.

    If you don't want to use this for text - and just for AutoShape fills, try
    using a gradient rather than a solid fill - this will look more realistic.
    You can also simulate Gold by using a Gold texture fill.

    Sometimes, you can just create something in Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro -
    and then get that inside PowerPoint.
