As the title stated, does gold find affect the amount of gold received from chests?

I conducted some tests using the treasure chest by the waypoint in Cathedral garden. I ran 70 trials. 35 with 31% Gold Find, and 35 with no Gold Find. To sum up the data(which is below), the difference between the gold gotten from the chest with 31% Gold Find and the gold gotten with no Gold Find is 32.99%. So yes, Gold Find does have an effect on the amount of gold from chests, and furthermore, the increase is the same percentage(on average) as the listed Gold Find on your character sheet.

+1 for the effort :-) –  Hurda Jun 6 '12 at 20:34

Magic Find and Gold Find seem to work the same way, and since Magic Find affects loot quality in chests, I would assume Gold Find does too

This would probably be easy to test by opening a bunch of treasure chests without gold find, taking note of the average, then realoading the game and opening chests in the same area with gold find. You should see a noticeable increase in gold found.

Do you have a source for MF working on chests? I could not find one :( –  Wikwocket May 25 '12 at 20:11
    
@Wikwocket Arreat Summit confirms that it worked on chests in D2, so absent proof otherwise, I would guess that still holds. –  bwarner May 25 '12 at 22:10

I cannot find an official source on this, but I believe it does affect chests. Here are some unofficial sources:
