The golden blood type, also known as the Rh null blood group, is the most unusual blood type since it lacks Rh antigens. It has no Rh antigens (proteins) on its red blood cells (RBCs). This is the rarest blood group in the world, with less than 50 people carrying it. It was discovered in Aboriginal Australians for the first time. The concern with the golden blood group is that Rh null donations are extremely infrequent and difficult to obtain. If an Rh null individual needs blood, they must rely on the assistance of a limited network of frequent Rh null donors all over the world. There are just nine current donors for this blood type worldwide.
