RIAA 2x Multi-Platinum Album award for the soundtrack and sing-along album for the Disney motion picture The Lion King.  The album was released on April 27, 1994 and certified Platinum by the RIAA on Aug. 17, 1994. Although it was never officially certified 2x Multi-Platinum at any point, it skipped past that certification, ending up being certified an impressive 10x Multi-Platinum by 1995.

Famously, the original songs on the album were written by Elton John and Tim Rice with Sir Elton performing some of the more memorable tracks including "Circle Of Life" and "Can You Feel The Love Tonight". The film score was written by Hans Zimmer. The album performed well, hitting #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and also in several other world markets. See image above for more RIAA sales certifications of this album through the years*.

Notes on the condition of all vintage RIAA awards like this one: Please do not buy this item if you want a brand new piece of memorabilia. These are historical artifacts from the year they were produced. As a result they may show signs of wear. Frankly, if you see a 20 to 50-year-old award purported to be in 100% perfect condition, it might be too good to be true. After all, an antique should have "good' wear. If not, you might want to question the piece.

As to where they came from, they could have been displayed in record label offices, recording studios, artist manager's offices, radio stations, private collector's homes and yes, of course, possibly the artist's or songwriter's home. Typically, we don't know all the places they may have been over the years other than what we've stated in the description.

Finally, a word on photos: Do let us know if you want photos of any other details on our pieces and we'll be happy to provide.
