    gold

    Dear all,

    What is the meaning of "gold" in the following context:

    "MY ALBUM SOLD 39,000 COPIES ITS FIRST WEEK. I WAS THINKING, I'LL BE LUCKY IF THIS ALBUM GOES GOLD."

    Thanks.

    IT's off "I just copy the quotes from the script".

    Shouldn't the sentence be like this?;

    My album sold 39,000 copies in its first week. I was thinking (that) I'd be lucky if this album went gold.

    Thanks for answers in advance.
