In heraldry, Or is the tincture of gold and, together with argent, belongs to the class of light tinctures called "metals". In engravings and line drawings, it may be represented using a field of evenly spaced dots. It is very frequently depicted as yellow, though gold leaf was used in many illuminated manuscripts and more extravagant rolls of arms. The word gold is occasionally used in place of Or in blazon, sometimes to prevent repetition of the word Or in a blazon, or because this substitution was in fashion when the blazon was first written down, or when it is preferred by the officer of arms. Or is frequently spelt with a capital letter so as not to confuse it with the conjunction or. Or is said to represent the following: ⁕Of jewels, the topaz ⁕Of heavenly bodies, the Sun ⁕Of metals, gold ⁕Of virtues, Faith or obedience and gentility
Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

or, conj. marking an alternative, and sometimes opposition [short for other, modern Eng. either].—prep. (B.) before. [In this sense a corr. of ere.]
or, n. (her.) gold. [Fr.,—L. aurum, gold.]
