Gold plating electrode.
This electrode could be used in one of two ways in electroplating operations. Because it's gold, a highly corrosion resistant noble metal, it could be used to deliver current without being dissolved or corroded. But a more common use would be to run the current in a way that causes the gold to dissolve slowly into solution, turning into gold ions, which are then deposited as gold metal on the object you want to plate. If you want to plate things with gold that gold obviously has to come from somewhere, and an electrode like this is one place to get the gold from.
