Gold is a featured resource in many of the Clash games. Gold is often used to upgrade buildings or play cards, depending on the game. On this page, we are going to be breaking down the uses of gold in the individual Clash games.
Clash of Clans
In Clash of Clans gold is used to build and upgrade Defensive Buildings, Elixir Collectors, Elixir Storage, traps, walls, workshops and decorations. Gold is dug up through Gold Mines. Much like Elixir, gold is stored in a Gold Storage, which can be upgraded 15 times. These upgrades ensure that the Gold Storage takes longer to damage and holds more Gold. Players can find the amount of gold that they have on the top right side of the screen.
In Clash Royale gold is the most basic resource, used to upgrade cards, purchase cards from the shop or create a Clan. Gold can be found in Chests, earned from winning multiplayer battles, rewarded during Special Event Challenges, purchased with Gems, or received from donating Cards to other members of a player's Clan. The amount of gold needed to upgrade Cards increased as the card level itself increases. When it comes to purchasing cards, on average, it costs 10 Gold for Common cards, 100 Gold for Rare Cards, 1,000 Gold for Epic cards, and 40,000 Gold for Legendary Cards. Epic Chests can also be purchased with Gold, through special offers. Creating a Clan costs 1,000 gold.
Gold can be found in every Chest except for Epic and Legendary. The amount of gold in each chest is based on the type of chest that a player is opening and the player's current Arena. Gold can also be received while donating cards; 5 Gold is awarded for each Common card, 50 gold is awarded for each Rare card, and 500 Gold is awarded for each Epic card donated. Once a player has fully leveled up a Card (or collected enough copies to max it out), all additional copies will be automatically converted into Gold; Common cards award 5 Gold, Rare cards awarded 50 Gold, Epic cards award 500 Gold, and Legendary cards award 20,000 gold. Gold is also rewarded when a player wins an Arenas match, a 2v2 match, or a Global/Private Tournament match. This award can happen a maximum of 20 times a day, across all types of matches.
Gold is maxed out at 5,000,000 per player.
