What is the difference between International Series tournaments and International Series Gold tournaments?

How many rankings points do each of them offer for the winner?

So in tournament important *excluding the TMC* is it just:

1. Grand Slams

2. Masters Series

3. International Series Gold

4. International Series

Thankyou.

Yes, the difference is the prize money and points awarded. There's a basic explanation on that page at Steve G's site. Let me see if I can find the page in the ATP rule book that explains it a little bit better.

I guess prize money is not so important. For example Stockholm and Moscow have higher prize money and still considered international series, while Tokyo and Vienna are among gold ones:

Tokyo International Series Gold $765,000

Vienna International Series Gold $690,000

Stockholm International Series $800,000

Moscow International Series $1,000,000
