Gold is truthfully is of pretty limited use as a structural metal. Iron is better, especially when mixed with a bit of carbon. But when you talk about value the conversation gets a lot more complicated, and things like perception get involved.

The question remains, what does gold bring to the table that magically confers an intrinsic value to it, other than perception?
