The Lord of wealth, God Kubera is believed to have been appointed as the banker of Gods on this very day, thus people worship gold and silver in the form of wealth on Akshaya Tritiya.
Besides all the mythological as well as the traditional beliefs, we sure want a rational reasoning for why gold on Akshaya Tritiya, so here is the most cerebral explanation. According to the Hindu traditions, the month of July and August are regarded as the auspicious months of marriages. Hence of course, if a marriage is to be held then the folks are inclined towards purchasing jewelleries and other stuff. So naturally the shopping spree begins on this day of Akshaya Tritiya in advance.
The first element that we always associate with Goddess Laxmi is gold, and that is what the day of Akshaya Tritiya is for. People keep gold and silver coins in front of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Laxmi and worship it on Dhanteras as well as on Akshaya Tritiya; they offer prayers and receive blessings. The most precious metal that gives the best investment returns is gold. It is very profitable if one invests in gold as the rates skyrocket in a few years. Thus people invest their money and increase their eternal wealth by buying gold on Akshaya Tritiya.
