Gold heptafluoride is a gold(V) compound with the empirical formula AuF7. The synthesis of this compound was first reported in 1986. Current calculations suggest that it may be the first difluorine complex, AuF5·F2. The gold(V) difluorine complex is calculated to be 205 kJ/mol more stable than gold(VII) fluoride. The vibrational frequency at 734 cm−1 is the hallmark of the end-on coordinated difluorine molecule.
