We discuss the electronic structure, bonding and physical properties of the gold cluster compound Au55(PPh3)12Cl6. Results from our experimental measurements, including EXAFS, specific heat, Mossbauer, UV-visible and photoelectron spectroscopy, are combined with those of other work to form a consistent physical picture of the system. The bonding in Au55(PPh3)12Cl6 is much more delocalised and non-directional than in smaller gold cluster molecules. The Au55 cluster exhibits a substantial degree of metallic bonding, while displaying some of the characteristics of a discrete energy level spectrum.
