The character for 'gold' is 金. Originally, the character depicted copper ore cast in a metal container, and meant 'metal'. Later, the character's meaning has been extended to mean 'gold'. 金 is commonly seen as a component in the characters which relate to 'metal', such as 銀 (silver) and 銅 (bronze; copper). By adding another character 牌 (placard; card), then we can form three useful words: 金牌 (gold medal), 銀牌 (silver medal) and 銅牌 (bronze medal). #Rio2016
