From the RIAA website:
RIAA’s historic Gold & Platinum Program defines success in the recorded music industry.
Originally conceived to honor artists and track sound recording sales, Gold & Platinum Awards have come to stand as a benchmark of success for any artist whether they’ve just released their first song or Greatest Hits album. In the eighties, the development of CDs increased music sales once again and popular music went Platinum more than once. So we developed the multi-Platinum Award.
 About the Awards :
The Gold & Platinum Awards have been a pinnacle of success in the music industry since 1958. The awards below are earned by artists who have met rigorous standards, and recipients join the ranks of the most iconic recording artists.
