While browsing ebay:

http://search.ebay.co.uk/queen-gold-disk_W0QQsoloctogZ9

Wouldn't mind a nice gold disk to stick on the wall, any in particular to look for to make sure it's genuine? Which one is the best to get?

all three are not genuine. When the seller says "limited edition" it's immediatly not a real award like one that was once given to a member or some other bobo.
go for a RIAA award.. those are most of the times easy to recognise. BPI awards are harder to recognise for genuinity (is that a word?)

once every two/three months, but the sum you have to pay is ofcourse x6 or x7. normal price is approx US$ 1000/1200 depending on to whom the award is presented to

Yep, Ron is right. These gold discs are actually nice (I myself have one :-) but if you want a genuine RIAA/BPI thing, you have to pay much more. I'd say $600-$800 are sometimes enough but it will hardly ever be cheaper than that.

To me all seven discs are made by somebody who has a lot of spare time. If you can get a nice shiny frame and some gold spray you can make one yourself.
Go for the real thing if you can.
