ABBA Gold is one of the biggest selling albums ever in Germany!
NB Certifications based on year of release, so for example until 1999 Platinum was 500,000 and Gold 250,000. Those certifications have subsequently been downgraded.
Sales higher than 10 million as several albums eg ABBA studio albums and numerous compilations would have sold but not enough for individual certifications. The certificated sales are in most cases minimum sales. Real sales probably 12-13 million.
Only Fernando received a certification for 500,000 sales. ABBA's other eight number ones - and #2 Honey Honey, would have sold in the region of 250,000 to almost 500,000. Sales are lower than the UK.
