Goldvarg
I don't know what it means, when it was created, or even where it comes from.

It looks German, or maybe Yiddish. No problem with the Gold, it means ... guess what! Could it be a non-German speaker's corruption of goldwaage, "gold-scales"? If so it might be a metonymic for a goldsmith, or even a money-changer.
