In early 1995, The Monkees attended a ceremony at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood that was hosted by Rhino Records. The first five Monkees albums had been re-certified by the RIAA for platinum and multi-platinum sales, and the group were presented with plaques to commemorate the occasion. Shortly thereafter, Rhino offered replica awards as a limited edition item.
Rich emailed some photos of his award, which can be seen below. It's labeled as #33 of 2500, and features a silver tone disc, dedication plaque, the band's autographs, and Monkees album cover reproductions. The piece measures 17.5" x 21.5" (including the frame).
