Yes, while I do prefer the original RWS over the Golden Universal because it's more mystical and because its images were the ones I grew up admiring, the Golden Universal is warmer and more inviting. That said, if you have a copy of the Universal Tarot, the Golden Universal is precisely that, just with gold accents added.

By the way, if I may suggest this, the canonical 78 Degrees of Wisdom and Fenton-Smith's The Tarot Revealed were hugely helpful in breaking me into my RWS studies. Have fun with your journey!
