The Gold Building (also known as the New Mexico Bank & Trust Building) is a 14-story, 62 m (203 ft) office skyscraper on Gold Avenue in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico. It is the sixth-tallest building in the city. When completed in 1961, it surpassed the Simms Building to become the tallest building in the state, and was itself surpassed by the Bank of the West Tower two years later.

The Bank of New Mexico Building, as it was originally known, was built in 1959–1961 on the site of the old Wright's Trading Post building at Fourth and Gold. The building was dedicated on January 16, 1961, in a ceremony featuring Native American dancers and a speech by a sombrero-wearing Winthrop Rockefeller, who was one of the original owners.

The building is rectangular in plan and sits on a larger one-story base. The east and west walls of the Gold Building are windowless expanses of reddish brick, much like the neighboring Simms Building. The north facade is clad in dark glass that neatly reflects the image of the Bank of Albuquerque Tower a few blocks away. The south elevation, also glass, is punctuated by a protruding brick-faced elevator shaft. The architects were W.C. Kruger & Associates.
