Additional Information

4 Million award. The pics shown were found on eBay, the seller gave the following info: “The presentee is not a person, but is the company that manufactured the award. They are a custom frame company in Los Angeles, Jewel Box Platinum ( and are certified by the RIAA to make the awards. The other blotted-out part is not a hologram, but is the logo plaque of the company, including their personal information (their phone #, address, logo, etc… stuff they’d probably appreciate not being posted on eBay.) That section of the plaque reads ‘Under license from the RIAA, Owner of the service marks RIAA & Design’.”

Info from

“The RIAA® Gold® and Platinum® Awards program was launched in 1958 in an effort to create a standard by which to measure sales of a sound recording.

In the beginning, there was only a Gold® album award for the sale of 500,000 copies. As the industry grew, other awards were developed. The Platinum® award (1,000,000 sold) was created in 1976 and with the advent of the compact disc and the subsequent increase in sales, the Multi-Platinum™ award was created in 1984.

On March 16, 1999, the RIAA® launched the Diamond® Awards, honoring sales of 10 million copies or more of an album or single.”
