Sonic Gems Collection is a compilation of Sonic the Hedgehog video games developed by Sonic Team and published by Sega for the GameCube and PlayStation 2 video game consoles. Unlike Sega's prior Sonic compilation Sonic Mega Collection, which focused on the most popular entries in the series, Gems Collection centers more around rare and obscure games, such as Sonic CD and Sonic R.

The game was released in Japan and North America in August 2005, and in Europe the following month. Only the GameCube version was released in North America; the PlayStation 2 version is exclusive to Europe and Japan. Upon release, the game received mixed reviews; critics generally praised the inclusion of Sonic CD, although opinions were mixed on the remaining content and extras included.

Sonic Gems Collection is a compilation presented in a similar style to the prior collection in the Sonic series, Sonic Mega Collection. However, as its name suggests, Gems Collection contains more rare and obscure games from the Sonic series. The game also includes an "Extras" feature, where players can look at illustrations and promotional material for the Sonic games, and play demos of some of the Sonic games featured in Mega Collection. All the Game Gear games in Gems Collection were previously included in Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut.

SegaSonic the Hedgehog was initially planned for inclusion, but was left out due to problems with properly emulating the game's trackball controls.[1] Sonic Eraser was once considered to be included as well; data referring to it exists in the game's coding.[2] There are also several pages of the art museum dedicated to Knuckles' Chaotix,[3] which has led to speculation that it was once considered for inclusion.
