The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) is the trade group that represents the US recording industry. It certifies gold, platinum, multi-platinum and diamond sales awards for best-selling record releases.

The following are the certifications for The Beatles’ albums sold in the United States. It documents the original UK releases which are now available on CD in the US and around the world.

A release is certified gold after shipping 500,000 copies; 1m warrants a platinum award. Double albums are counted twice, hence the high score of The Beatles (White Album) and the Anthology releases.

Figures believed correct as of January 2009.
