The Gold Pickaxe is an early game pickaxe, being stronger than the Silver Pickaxe, and weaker than the Nightmare Pickaxe. It has an alternate ore version, the Platinum Pickaxe, which is actually slightly stronger. Like all pickaxes, it is used to mine a majority of blocks and ores. If a world generates with Silver Ore instead of Tungsten Ore, the Gold Pickaxe is the earliest pickaxe the player can obtain that can mine Meteorite and Demonite.
Its mining speed is 17, compared to Silver Pickaxe's 11 and Tungsten Pickaxe's 19. However Silver Pickaxe will require one more hit to destroy blocks, and therefore Gold Pickaxe is a faster upgrade. Please note that mining stone-like blocks will take 34 time with Gold and 33 with Silver, where dirt-like blocks will take 17 time with Gold and 22 with Silver.
