A gold disc is an award given to a song according to the number of records sold or shipped in that country (including CDs after the appearance of the CD) based on the standards set for each country. After that, it basically increases to "double-" (2 times), "triple-" (3 times), "quadruple-" (4 times), and so on. In some cases, silver discs are prepared at the bottom and platinum discs, diamond discs, etc. are prepared at the top in each country, and there are also cases where different standards are set for singles, albums, videos, etc. As a souvenir, the award-winning songs will be presented with silver, gold, and platinum colored records that are framed and accompanied by a nameplate. The origin of the gold disc is given by each record company to the artist who produced the work that contributed to the sales, and Glenn used in the movie "Sun Valley Serenade" (20th Century Fox, 1941) that sold 1.2 million copies. It started in February 1942 when RCA Records awarded Miller "Chatanooga Choo Chu".
