Gold is a colour available to several Neopets and Petpets. Gold coloured Neopets were first released on February 28, 2001. Originally, Gold coloured Neopets could only be obtained by using the Lab Ray. However, on March 2, 2001, the Golden Paint Brush was released, allowing user to paint their Neopets Gold using the Rainbow Pool. Today, users also have the choice of changing their Neopet's colour to Gold when they complete a Fountain Faerie Quest. Alternately, a Neopet's colour can be changed to Gold by using an appropriate Morphing Potion.
Gold Petpets were released along with the Petpet Lab Ray on August 3, 2005. With the exception of the Gold Mauket, which was given out as a prize during the 2010 Games Master Challenge, Gold Petpets can only be obtained by receiving a lucky zap from the Petpet Lab Ray. Since Petpets that have been zapped by the Petpet Lab Ray revert to their original form when removed from a Neopet, it is impossible for a user to have any Gold Petpet other than a Gold Mauket in their inventory. As such, the Gold Mauket is the only Gold Petpet that can be bought, sold, or traded.
