Abstract : In this paper, we define a mean of two positive numbers called the $k$-$golden~mean$ and study some properties of it. Especially, we show that the $2$-golden mean refines the harmonic and the geometric means. As an application, we define the $k$-$golden~ratio$ and give some properties of it as an generalization of the $golden~ratio$. Furthermore, we define the matrix $k$-golden mean of two positive-definite matrices and give some properties of it. This is an improvement of Lim's results \cite{Lim1} for which the matrix golden mean.
