Gold leaf is an item used in Construction. It can be bought for 130,000 coins from either the Stonemason in Keldagrim or the Sawmill operator in the Ithell part of Prifddinas. It can also be bought on the Grand Exchange for 132,665. The lowest level item that can be made with Gold leaf is the Teak prize chest in a Games room (not to be confused with the one in the Treasure room), at level 44 Construction.
In the past, an alternative method to making an item requiring a gold leaf was buying the item in a flatpack instead of making it for the full price. For example, a player may have wanted a gilded clock, but to make one would have cost about 140,000 coins. The player may have been able to get it from the Grand Exchange (for about 134,180) if one was for sale. This may have proven difficult for some items, however, taking into account that not all gilded flatpacks were obtainable from Treasure Trails. The flatpacks that could not be obtained via Treasure Trails could only be bought at close to their construction cost. However, due to an update, flatpacks can no longer be obtained from Treasure Trails so prices for those flatpacks are rising.
Additionally, purchasing an item is not a viable alternative to constructing certain items, such as the Gilded altar, because this item cannot be created as a flat pack item and sold on the Grand Exchange.
