The Golden Tarot is a modern Tarot deck based on the Rider-Waite-Smith deck created by the Australian artist and author Kat Black. The deck makes use from the European masters' paintings, these cards pay tribute to artwork of the Middle ages and early Renaissance to emulate the feel of such early decks as the Visconti-Sforza.

The deck was published by US Games Systems in 2004 with a 90 page companion book (ISBN 1-57281-434-9). The deck was created by digitally collaging European artwork from 1300 - 1500AD, largely in the International Gothic style. In addition to traditional Rider-Waite symbolism, Black incorporated many other symbols to make the deck easy to read intuitively.

It was voted one of the Top Ten Tarot Decks of all time in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007 on the popular Aeclectic Tarot Forum[1].

Golden Tarot has 78 cards and follows the ordering system of the Rider-Waite-Smith deck.
