Although you net nothing from it - you spend two gold to put it in shadows, then take it out of shadows to get the 2 gold back, I'm guessing the real value here is 1) a card in shadows for cards whose effects are powered by them, and 2) a way to get gold in your pool when you need it. I've been trying cards like Coin Mint and Tywin for that, but maybe this would work better...
I believe Coin Mint is better then this card in almost any scenario nowadays. About the only two uses for this card I saw before was that you could go +2 gold if you "cheated" it down into shadows with for example Shadow Seer. The other use was to spend a turn "investing" and then go Valar the urn after and still afford to deploy a larger field then your opponent... But for the last Coin Mint is superior and I don't know if the first is even worth it.

I have no experience in playing the card though. This is just guesses and speculations :P
You make money if you have a Twilight Market (AToT) or two out.

What would be fun would be to take this out of shadows during the plot phase, then you have the gold to pay for taking Shadow Politics (CoS) out of shadows at the beginning of Marshaling. Your first action is a Intrigue challenge.

Does "comes out of shadows" include getting discarded from shadows?

 

If it does, then it is somewhat of a reimbursement in the case when you are forced to discard from shadows.

No, the card is simply discarded.
