Golden fish eggs are items that can be obtained whilst training Fishing, looting the Motherlode Maw, and opening golden prawn crackers, or at a rate of 1/200 while opening prawn balls or prawn crackers. They can be gained without the requisite level in Fishing as golden mystery eggs if they are gained through golden prawn crackers, prawn balls, or prawn crackers. Golden prawn crackers guarantee one golden mystery egg to each of the two players who participated in pulling it open.

Golden fish eggs are not received directly through fishing raw desert sole, catfish, or beltfish in Menaphos, except from prawn balls and crackers, evidenced from the fact that charges from prawn pennies and prawn pounds will not decrease whilst fishing in Menaphos. One golden mystery egg and later one golden prawn cracker, for a total of two "free" eggs, is awarded to players for respectively unlocking the tier 2 and 4 prawn perks from the Prawnbroker.

An Aquarium is not required to have been built in order to obtain golden fish eggs. At level 99 Fishing, the time it takes to receive golden fish eggs averages around two to three hours per egg. There is a total of 14 unique golden fish eggs to collect. If a player already owns a golden egg for a certain fish, they will not be able to receive a second egg for the same fish.
