That's gold, Disney! Gold!

A friend gifted me this bit of merch from a recent trip to Disneyland. The "GOLD" part is part of a label/sticker on the end of pen, with a UPC code. I asked what the "GOLD" label meant, if it was a loyalty points program, or maybe some other meaning, but they did not know. Do you? pic1 pic2

What colour is the ink? It's not a gold-coloured ink gel pen?

For small items, rather than putting price tags on each they color code with stickers.

Yes! I know this!

Usually near the cash registers are lots and lots of small whim buy items, and they're labeled with colors instead of price tags. The colors correspond to pricing charts displayed near the items. It's easier for the staff to change the pricing charts when the prices change than to re-sticker each small item.

They do this a lot with pins. For instance.
