Don't know about anyone else's neck of the woods, but in the UK the pink iPod sold very well indeed. Probably best of all the mini's. Girls love them (I know thats sortof a stereotype, but its true). In the UK at least, the green and gold Minis were the least popular colours. Thats why they axed the gold one. I would estimate the gold is the rarest simply becuase its the only one that was dropped for the second generation.
