crock of gold

A particularly large sum of money or valuable resources. Regulators chastised the financial firm for chasing crocks of gold through risky investments of questionable legality rather than protect their clients' funds. You're not going to find a crock of gold going into this business, but it's definitely lucrative enough to make a living.
