- This article is about the gold dollar. For the silver dollar, see Mirrored Element.
The Lustrous Element (レアメタルG?, lit.: "Rare Metal G") is a treasure in Pikmin 2. The Lustrous Element is actually a gold dollar and is found on the fourth sublevel of the Hole of Heroes, inside of the Pileated Snagret. It is tied for the position of the third most-valuable treasure in the game.

- According to Olimar in his notes, he notes that the treasure is actually made out of an unknown metal and compares it to a “valuable metal with a stunning sheen that has a similar effect”, which is implied to be gold. As the treasure itself is evidently a golden dollar, this would suggest that the coin itself is made out of an alloy that resembles gold, such as brass.
- This treasure weighs the same as the Mirrored Element, despite gold weighing more than silver.
