Why people buy Gold and other utensils on Dhanteras?

According to legendary stories by this Manthan, 14 precious ratnas were produced by the ocean, of which God Dhanwantri was the one.
On this day only God Dhanwantri which is one of the avatars of Lord Vishnu appeared with a Gold pot on his hand, filled with ‘amrit‘. After this only the practice of buying Gold and other utensils on Dhanteras was started.
