Victoria 3 Gold Map 

Gold is a valuable resource in Victoria 3 that's used for the production of different luxury goods, meaning more wealthy nations will want gold as the richer members of the population begin to demand it. Obviously, gold doesn't just spawn out of thin air, and you will need to either secure a gold resource or set up trade routes with nations that have their own source. There are gold fields and gold mines, with the latter offering far more gold. Gold mines take longer to discover in-game, and gold fields can often convert into gold mines if they are stripped of their resources.
