Metallic gold, such as in paint, is often called goldtone or gold tone. In heraldry, the French word or is used. In model building, the color gold is different from brass. A shiny or metallic silver tone object can be painted with transparent yellow to obtain goldtone, something often done with Christmas decorations.
