Back in my Apple II days I remember that we figured out or read somewhere how to double your gold.

I remember it had something to do with copying the data disk and entering or exiting an Inn.

Does anybody remember this? or how to do it? I'll go experiment later, but maybe the collective knowledge will be able to remember.

Somehow I mis-googled earlier. Found on Game FAQs:

But it shouldn't. Even if you have one gold piece left, you can execute this

following cheat on the Apple.

1. create a character G

2. back up your B-disk. Call the original B1 and the backup B2.

3. Pool all your gold to one character. Have him(A), along with G, leave

Sorpigal on B1, but remove the rest of your party.

4. When in Sorpigal, switch B1 and B2. Pool your gold to G and Enter the inn

to save to B2.

5. Remove A and exit to Sorpigal. Remove B2 and insert B1.

6. Go to the inn to save to B1.

Now all characters are preserved except G. G has the gold A pooled to him.

But so does A, still, according to B1! Pool A and G's gold to A and repeat

steps 3-6 until you've got all the gold you want.
