The Gold Tracer is available in Artorias of the Abyss DLC only. The curved sword may be obtained by either exchanging the Soul of Artorias with Lord's Blade Ciaran for both the Gold Tracer and the Dark Silver Tracer or by killing her. Exchanging and killing will not result in two sets of each weapon. Also, upon killing Lord's Blade Ciaran, she will drop the Lord's Blade Set of armor.
The Gold Tracer is designed as an offhand weapon. It has the highest dexterity requirement of any Curved Sword in the game. This weapon is the only weapon in the game that performs two special attacks while it is in the left hand, eschewing the ability to parry for a heavy attack in the off hand. When the sword is swung it will create an orange-gold visual effect.
Using this sword in conjunction with the Dark Silver Tracer is a good match up as it allows the player to deal Bleed damage from the Gold Tracer, as well as Toxic damage with Dark Silver Tracer's strong attack (which can only be done with the right hand). The moveset for the Gold Tracer is similar to that of the Painting Guardian Sword.
