The best Gold Find follower you can have is the Templar.

Useful advice, tips and suggestion:

In playing, I have found out that the best place in farming gold is the Core of Arreat with Nightmare Difficulty. You can go to Core of Arreat by taking the Act 3 – Heart of Sin quest, the quest where you will kill Azmodan.

I choose Nightmare Difficulty as the monster doesn’t even scratch or hurt my character, thus farming gold efficiently.

Suggested Pick-up radius for Core of Arreat is 35 to 40 radius. If you are farming in Sarkoth – Dank Cellar, then suggested Pick-up radius is 10, except for Demon Hunter which can use Ferrets skill to pick up gold. For casual gaming, I use 20 Pickup radius.

Movement speed is quite important for Gold find runs as you can move faster thus giving you more gold per hour. Cap for movement speed is 25%, and boots are capped to 12% movement speed. The item, Writ’s Original Leg maximum movement sped is 7%.

If you have budget find movements speed items with Gold find stats as you will be able to farm well and increase your gold per hour.

You may not agree with this but gold in Diablo 3 is the key to have a decent character. All of the characters max level are 60, thus in the end, only items and equipment matter. You can also sell your gold via the RMAH and profit with real cash.
