The Goldenback Triggerfish, Xanthichthys caeruleolineatus is about as rare as they comes when it comes to the family Balistidae. The GoldenBack Triggerfish, Xanthichthys caeruleolineatus, shares the genus with the highly desired cross-hatch and blue throat trigger as well as the curious Kiri triggerfish, but it is far more rare.
While Xanthichthys caeruleolineatus has a pretty wide geographic range, they are mostly found on very deep(300ft+) seaward reefs. Therefore, they are rarely collected by those who have the means. The number collected yearly can be counted on one hand, and there are years where none are collected at all.
The other issue of getting goldenback triggerfish into the aquarium trade is that they usually show up in very large sizes.
