In the Fallout 76 update Wastelanders, Gold bullion is a trade currency. Gold bullion consists of solid bars or ingots of pure, 24 karat gold. Once gold becomes the backbone of most currencies before fiat currencies and rapid inflation, its value is a limited number of precious metals. Even after the first World War, Gold bullion was still accepted by merchants and traders specializing in gold.
The currency is used to trade late game plans and recipes with gold bullion traders at Crater and Foundation and with Vault 79. These traders include Regs, Samuel, and Mortimer.
Fallout 76’s Gold Bullion limit is capped at 1,700 per week and 5000 per character. Trading in treasury notes at this point will cause the gold bullion that was supposed to be received to be deleted. It will not be replaced if lost. The following is the maximum amount of Gold Bullion Caps:

After completion of the Wastelanders main questline, gold bullion will become available:
There are two main ways for farming Gold Bullion:
Go to The Wayward, look for Smiley. If you have caps, to be precise, he is willing to trade your Gold Bullion: 1000 Caps.
Smiley will exchange 1000 caps for 50 gold bullion.
You can exchange 300 Gold Bullion with him a week, which means you need 6000 caps to get the maximum amount from him every week.
You need to do this on Gold Press Machines, which you can easily find in the Crater or Foundation.
Treasure Notes can be obtained by conducting public activities (two Treasury Notes each) or by doing quests for either the Settlers or Raider factions (three Treasury Notes each).
You can exchange one Treasury Note for 10 Gold Bullion at a Gold Press and up to 200 Gold Bullion per day.
There are three Gold Bullion Vendors located at the Crater, Foundation, and another in a location players will unlock during the main story. Each vendor will offer a different set of new Wastelanders items in exchange for Gold Bullion.
Personally, I’m trying to build the Secret Service Armor, which may be the only way I can use Gold Bullion. My level is 101, but according to my build, power armor is still needed in most high-level areas. Therefore, I’ve been looking for a way to keep my build without having to use power amplifiers often. SS armor is not a PA anyway, but it’s much more flexible, doesn’t need a core, and is legendary when it’s made. If you spread Gold Bullion and try to get more than one function, it will take longer until you have done everything you need. Since the vault opened, I’ve been very energetic every day. So far I’ve bought my left and right arms. I crafted six until I got the legendary perk I wanted, which is better than RNG. The downside is that I can’t sell anything. I have 15 arms in my stash, but I can exchange them for scrip.
SS armor is another choice.
