The title compound, (1,4,7,10,13,16-hexaoxacyclooctane)potassium dichloroaurate(I), [K(C12H24O6)][AuCl2], consists of potassium ion encapsulated by the 18-membered crown ether 1,4,7,10,13,16-hexaoxacyclooctane and a linear dichloroaurate(I) monoanion. The potassium occupies a crystallographic center of symmetry with a ring coordination number of six, and two chlorides in axial sites at a distance of 3.2306 (5) Å. The linear anionic species sits on another crystallographic center of symmetry.
