Platinum & Gold Collection is a series of budget-priced greatest hits compilations for recording artists on the labels of Sony BMG. The series was launched as a Sony BMG counterpart to Universal Music Group's successful 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection series. Most Platinum & Gold Collection albums contain 12 tracks.

The Platinum and Gold Collection is a series of discount-priced greatest hits CDs by bands who have recorded for BMG or its subsidiaries.

The albums are often compiled by the label without the participation or approval of the bands being anthologized, and as a result, the CDs are often boycotted by fans of the bands. One notable example is the Cowboy Junkies anthology.

However, for some older artists, Platinum and Gold Collection CDs may also be the only hits compilations currently available in record stores.
