Elvis’ second compilation of hit singles, with songs recorded in 1958 and 1959 and released in November 1959, was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America on November 1, 1966. The album reached number 31 on the Billboard charts. RCA later added the phrase “50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can’t Be Wrong” to a few mono labels to match the record jacket, which featured multiple images of Elvis in his famous gold lamé suit. Offered is the white linen matte RIAA gold record award issued for Elvis’ Gold Records Volume 2 upon reaching Gold certification in 1966. The framed award displays a plaque mounted beneath the gold record that reads, “Presented to ELVIS PRESLEY to commemorate the sale of more than one million dollars worth of the RCA RECORDS long-playing record album ‘ELVIS’ GOLD RECORDS VOLUME 2’.” This framed display features a gold-toned record above the gold-colored plaque with small image of the album cover, all mounted on a white linen background. The reverse bears the framing label from New York Frame & Picture Co. on 141 Fulton Street in New York. Elvis’ second greatest hits album release was the first ever released for the rock and roll musician and would help fuel his fame just before he departed for his Army service, helping to keep him in the hearts and minds of fans. The framed award measures 21 1/2 by 17 1/2 inches (54.61 x 44.45 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The framed award is in excellent condition overall with several minor scuffs and scratches to the frame. Excellent to Mint condition.
