Collins started the Premier League encounter at Selhurst Park and played for the entire 90 minutes, as the Hammers registered a 3-1 victory over 10-man Palace.
The Wales international defender had a pass accuracy of 79%, attempted one dribble, won 100% of his tackles and 50% of his headers, and made one interception and four clearances.
West Ham co-chairman Gold was impressed with the performance of the 32-year-old centre-back and spoke highly of him on Twitter.
