I saw one for $18 and was just thinking about getting it. why are there two different colors anyway? was there a special promotion when it came out?

Gold is not rare at all. A gray one would be much harder to find.

The first two Zeldas were gold at first. A gold Ocarina of Time, however, is rarer and more expensive, as it was only available by pre-ordering the game.

I have all gold zelda cartridges except Alttp (would buy it in a heartbeat). To answer your question the gold AoL cartridge is not all that rare. If you're a collector (like me) then it's worth the 18$ assuming it comes with all the original promo stuff and box is in good condition.

GBC Cartridges are cooler, they're see-through, so you can see all the circuitry inside. My OOS Cartridge is like that.

I've heard the golden NES cartridges were at first a limited edition, but they drew so much attention that Nintendo made it the standard so that they would sell more copies (thus the gray one becoming rarer). Can someone confirm this?
