It is

The letter O

The letter O appears in the words ocean, pocket, adventurous, and curious. If you cast it from the word old, you will find it "new" (in a new word by itself).


Is it


As in the sea are goldfish.

Gold coins in your pocket.

Gold could be a reward for the adventurous.

Golden antiques could interest the curious.

And when you melt it down you get a new bar of gold from old gold objects
