n= 0,88


a mol is a quantity of substance that contains an Avogadro's number of molecules (#6.022 xx 10^23#)
But Gold as the others metals has no a definite molecule. Some authors consider than metals molecule monatomic so you would have
#n=(5.3 xx 10^23)/(6.022 xx 10^23= 0,88)#
in this case you have the moles of atoms of Gold
