Bronze and Gold probably aren't good together, regardless of what the
Olympics say - Copper would be more distinct.  Gold is "yellow"; silver
is "white", and copper is "red"; bronze is somewhere between gold and
copper, and wouldn't really be readily distinct from either.  Any other
metals that I can think of seem to be close to one of the above; there
don't seem to be any "blue" or "green" metals.
