Gold ingots can be obtained by smelting gold ore in a furnace, trading with villagers, or looting dungeon/village chests. This article focuses on the non-vanilla uses of gold ingots, so for vanilla information, please view the Minecraft Wiki article here.


Aside from the vanilla ways to get gold, a Tome of Alkahest and Lapis block can be used with a gold ingot to make two gold ingots.
