There were only in-house awards in 1974 in Germany. Official Gold and Platinum awards were released from 1975. http://www.musikindustrie.de/gold_platin_datenbank/Timmy94 wrote:The thing with Germany can't be right!
Platinum in Germany has always been 0.5 mio. until it was changed in 1999 to 300.000 for albums (singles stayed) and in 2003 to 200.000 for albums and to 300.000 for singles.

Shakira's Diamond Prism Award for Pies Descalzos in 1997 was equivalent to 10xDiamond award (1,000,000), so i think 100k has always been Diamond level there.argentino78 wrote:I found this information in an old database. It's not surprising that some amounts were updated (downgraded). Colombia's case always surprised me considering the size of the market, so 100K instead of 300K sounds much more reasonable.
About the UK diamond, it's been discussed previously. Officially there's no such award but some count the 3M mark as "diamond".
