Spellthief's Edge is mostly used because it generates passive gold even while not in lane and has more utility on roaming champions, as you generate gold during ganks.

Coin/medalion have the exact same passive gold gain rate :P (2 gps) And you arguably get the same amount of gold while ganking if you stick around for a few minion deaths xD

EDIT: Maw pls, I've tried spellthief on both Janna and Soraka and based on my own personal results medalion is better :p I guess it's just cause I don't like playing aggressive with champs who suck at it, since vs most decent players I get poked back 10 times harder than my punny shield + autos/Q+banana harass.
Thanks to Koksei for the sig!

Ancient Coin doesn't have that bonus. And you have to get Mobility Boots and Sightstone before you can upgrade it.

the issue is that to get around the same gold as one Q + auto + meep with spellthief you need to stay around for eight minions and steal XP with coin. not worth.

The coach of CW and EL talked about Bard in the german IEM stream, they said he will most likely see no use at all, and if, only in a laneswap where he can use his roam.

Best theory I've heard is him being a support. Or everyone saying "I got this."

No it does not. At least, it shouldn't.

Meh tested, it doesn't.

I'm not sure if it's worth building any AP on him really. His damage is quite awful even with ~200 AP and 60+ Chimes. Maybe a full utility thing suits him better.

Although definetly the most fun champ I played in a while. Junglers need to adapt to Bard. Setting up a gank is a piece of cake (with ult and portal).
