What cultures don’t value gold?
Australia during the gold rush? I can’t find online corroboration of this, probably because I read this on a tourist placard somewhere. But apparently when Prince Alfred came to visit Australia in 1868, the streets of Bendigo (or was it Ballarat?) were paved with silver. Gold was too plentiful.
