(Though I could >add "Rust" to the list.) 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.
