There are some interesting tutorials on various types of sparks:

BEST tutorial: (sometimes offline -just save page to your local machine)

No prob

Also, you could also just color hardware particle points gold, with a teeny bit of glow in post.

Render them with the multi-pass option, (3-9 passes worked for me) , and a little bit of Mblur in post, and just add gravity and collisions to taste
