Here is your word of the day, why not try and use the word in a piece of creative writing? link it to this post and let everyone take a look.

Gelt \gelt\ , noun:

Slang. money.

All he wants is some U.S. gelt and a nice pair of elevator shoes.
— James Ellroy, Blood’s a Rover, 2009

Let alone he was always one for a bit of life, you could earn extra gelt in London, for there were always errands to be run, or notes to be delivered, and you got a shilling every time you were sent off to execute such commissions.
— Georgette Heyer, The Unknown Ajax, 1959
