The Gold Cone of Ezelsdorf-Buch is a tall (88 cm), cone-shaped object made of thin sheet gold, it is seen as belonging to a group of artifacts referred to as Bronze Age Golden hats. It was presumably worn by special functionaries on ceremonial occasions.

It is one of four such known items. Three of them were discovered in Southern Germany, and one in the west of France. It dates to circa 1,000 to 900 BC.
