It's Lunar Festival time. One of the 'traveling' holidays that has you going from area to area to kiss up to those that came before you.
Where if you look at the top it would seem to be much more difficult to make gold during this holiday. No obvious holiday boss to kill. But there are a few suggestions on how to rack up some good gold.
If you honor all of the different elders around Azeroth, Northrend and Even Outland you can obtain a maximum of 85 Coins of Ancestory. If you have bought all of the items necessary to finish the achievement a good purchase would be the appropriate lantern (Festival Light for Horde or Lunar Lantern for Alliance). In the next couple of days there should be many of these appearing to be bought. If the flood hits your server quickly, take your new pet and tuck him into your bank. When the sales stop drop him on the cross faction auction house in Tanaris. If you can work out a deal with a friend or can swap it across to one of your toons you can net a nice profit by selling the lantern on the opposite faction auction house.
The gang at Icy-Veins.com has put up an excellent guide on the lunar festival including exact placement for the elders to talk too. Give them some link love to make your quest much easier. A good option to obtain gold is to advertise in Trade chat if you have a two seat mount. Dragging someone who might not have the ability to get to certain areas can net you a certain amount of gold into your pocket.
And where I won't be offering any tokens, If you want to treat me like an Elder you can probably find me in Orgrimmar. Kissing up is accepted.
Good Luck and Good Hunting
