Gold is richer and biscuit is lighter but seems to be a bit more beige. They're both not vastly different like gold vs. etain, etc. so it's a matter of whether you like it a bit lighter or deeper. I prefer gold personally as my first H bag was in gold and still looks brand new today. Wonder if the lighter biscuit could get dirty easier? And it seems to be more of a daytime color for me. G'luck deciding. Can't go wrong with either and Lindy is such a pretty and useful bag.
