A pot of gold is what some people believe that a leprechaun’s keeps at the end of a rainbow. A rainbow riddle is:

Q: What will you actually find at the end of every rainbow?
A: The letter W.


“What is at the end of the rainbow? A. The letter w.” was printed in The News and Observer (Raleigh, NC) on October 28, 1973.


Wikipedia: Rainbow
A rainbow is a meteorological phenomenon that is caused by reflection, refraction and dispersion of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky. It takes the form of a multicoloured circular arc. Rainbows caused by sunlight always appear in the section of sky directly opposite the Sun.

The Irish leprechaun’s secret hiding place for his pot of gold is usually said to be at the end of the rainbow. This place is appropriately impossible to reach, because the rainbow is an optical effect which cannot be approached.
