The first Centenary number plate C100 has been placed up for auction and the bidding war has already reached $5000. Bidding closes monday so if you’d like to have this fancy number plate stuck to your car, be sure to place your big for $5001 by 4pm Monday.
The number plate, one in a series of one hundred produced for the Centenary of Canberra, is being auctioned online by PicklesPlus. All proceeds of the auction will go to the official Centenary charity, Dollars for Dili.
The Executive Director of the Centenary of Canberra, Jeremy Lasek, said that bidding was brisk when the auction opened on 2 May.
“The reserve price was $500, and early bids quickly pushed the price up to $2000,” Mr Lasek said.
“The number plates are very smart, with C 100 in white on a black background and ‘Celebrating Canberra’s Centenary 1913-2013’ in gold underneath. They will add panache to cars of all makes, and are a genuine Centenary collector’s item.”
The Centenary website has a link to PicklesPlus for people to register their bids.
The number plates can only be fitted to ACT-registered vehicles.
