That is from anime. Not real life. The show, called full metal Alchemy, was based loosely on the concept of Alchemy which was the medieval precursor to chemistry and physics. Modern day alchemists generally seek spiritual transformation. This, however, does not cause transformation of anything physical. Medieval alchemists were also never able to transmute metals or anything of that nature either.

You likely could have found all of this yourself via google.

Alchemists tried to figure it aot since the day they lurned what is gold, many of earths greatest minds have tried and none have don it, yet you ask like its no big deal, well if you do figure it aot you will definitely get a noble prize or ten, but I wouldn't get your hopes up no-one has been able to do it up to now and probably wont do it any time soon

As stated by AwakeTooLong, it is not possible to transform another metal, such as silver or lead, into gold by the means of magic.

Bonus info:

It is, however, currently possible through scientific means to "create" gold through nuclear decay. It requires a nuclear reactor or a particle accelerator, and the production cost would be many times the current price of gold.

Well...I suppose you're all right...It looks like decay is really the only way. And it looks like my chemistry teacher is right as well (As Much As I Hate To Admit it.) LOL But um...thxs for the info all comments are appreciated 100%. You guys are awesome...and uh stay classy.

Yes they are. Fictional alchemy is very much done today by illusionists to create the effect of alchemy. But alchemy itself is not about transmutation or creation. That is just the tip of the spear. Alchemy mostly is to change yourself into someone better. That's why to master alchemy you can't look at the physical sides alone(transforming lead into gold), you HAVE to involve the spiritual side as well. It is on the spiritual plane that the 'transformation' happens. And some attempt to bring it down on the physical.
