Hello I'm trying to make a command where it summons a gold ingot. I tried this command but it says:

[19:31:10] Data tag parsing failed: Expected '}' but got ':' at: {Item:{id:minecraft:<--[HERE]

Does anyone know how to fix this?

/summon Item ~ ~ ~ {Item:{id:minecraft:gold_ingot,Count:1}}

You are missing quotes on the id portion:id:minecraft:gold_ingot

When it is being parsed, it views the : in between minecraft and gold_ingot as command formatting.

Here is the command with the quotes:

/summon Item ~ ~ ~ {Item:{id:"minecraft:gold_ingot",Count:1}}
  • Wait, can you even summon items? – user181699 Aug 27 '17 at 19:54
  • Yep. I would not have posted it as an answer if you couldn't. – IronAnvil Aug 27 '17 at 21:37
