|Record company award discs started their life as 'Gold Discs' with the first of
these awarded by RCA to Glenn Miller in February 1942, celebrating 1,200,000
sales of Chattanooga Choo Choo. Most countries have followed the original RIAA
'Gold Disc' certification which was pioneered and trademarked in the USA.
Typically presented to a number of recipients starting with band members & family,
management and then to key record company staff who it was felt contributed to
the success of the release or the band. They are also given to a small number of
high profile radio stations, DJ's and shops whose efforts increased the profile
of the band. There are a number of different types of award discs with the most
hard to find being those certified by the Record Companies official body in each
country, for example in the UK it is the BPI, USA have the RIAA , Canada CRIA,
France SNEP these being just a few of those we have come across. These most
typically, are presented to band members, management and national radio stations.
The second type of award are 'In House' awards which are produced by the record
company in slighly larger numbers to thank industry 'workers' and general media.
All presented in very small quantities to commemorate the number of records sold,
with UK BPI as an example classifying Gold as 200,000 copies, Platinium as
300,000 and silver as 200,000 with differing levels for singles sold, which again
differs from country to country.
The actual awards themselves are constructed from a variety of materials which
historically was for LP sales but has increasingly been replaced by CD awards.
All tend to feature sleeve artwork reproductions with the disc mounted on a
coloured felt background above a dedication plaque , with layout varying in
the case of landmark sales such as 4xPlatinum for 1.2 million copie sold.
There is no set rule of thumb though as far as design goes, and some labels
in far flung countries are inclined to be rather creative.
The most important consideration when purchasing these items is to ensure you
buy authentic industry awards and not those sold on auction sites and market
stalls which are described as reproduction presentation discs. This in reality
translates as shoddy unofficial and poorly constructed items made in someones
tool shed. As with all purchases from EIL.COM you are 100% guaranteed to receive
authentic and genuine items.
