- "Gold crystals are often confused with Time Crystals, though they are not the same. You collect gold crystals to earn money. They do not help or hinder in making valid time control combinations."

Blinx: The Time SweeperEdit
Gold can be found in every Round apart from Momentopolis. It can be found in various sizes (which correspond to how much each piece is worth) and shapes, sharing the same shapes as Time Crystals; the only obvious difference being the Gold's gleaming colour and size difference. It's only use is as currency, allowing Blinx to buy new equipment, items or clothing once he has collected enough. It is also awarded to Blinx at the end of each Stage if he has trash left in his Sweeper; each trash piece worth a different amount of Gold ranging from 1G-100G. After defeating Boss Time Monsters, a large amount of Gold appears from the point where the boss fell, though this Gold disappears after a few seconds if not collected quickly enough. (a trick to collect it all after a boss battle is to stand on the point that the gold spawns from during the boss death animation.)
Blinx 2: Masters of Time and SpaceEdit
Unlike in the previous game, Gold now appears as bronze, silver and gold coins; these coins being worth 5G, 8G and 10G respectively. However, like the previous game, the ways to use and find Gold stay the same; Gold can be found in Stages, usually out in the open or in crates, or can be earned by having extra trash/ammo at the end of a Round, and is used to buy new equipment/items/clothing. Though, there are a few additional ways to earn Gold, including collecting Time Crystals for a Time Control that already has the maximum amount of uses it can carry, killing regular Time Monsters/Guard Sweepers (Tom Toms only), exchanging Time Controls for Gold after every Round (done automatically) or playing Versus Mode with other players.
