educator

Here is my best explanation:

'teacher' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'european given ancient coin gold' is the wordplay.
'european' becomes 'e' (abbreviation e.g. EU).
'given' says to put letters next to each other.
'ancient coin' becomes 'ducat' (I've seen this before).
'gold' becomes 'or' ('or' is the heraldic name for gold).
'e'+'ducat'+'or'='EDUCATOR'

'for' acts as a link.
