Online Auction for Centenary Number Plates

By Canberra100 - 2 May 2013 31

It’s been a while since Canberra had a commemorative number plate, so what better time than the Centenary to roll some out.

100 special number plates have been produced to mark this special year, and can be fitted to ACT-registered cars. They’re sure to become collector’s items, and will support a good cause or two as well.

C 100 and C001 will be auctioned online by the ACT Government, with the proceeds going to the official Centenary of Canberra charity Dollars for Dili and Boundless, the playground on the lake’s edge where there will be no barriers to play or inclusion.

The Centenary team will also allocate plates to local not-for-profit and charitable organisations for their own fundraising activities and Dollars for Dili. Organisations need to have deductible gift recipient status and deliver services in Canberra and the ACT region. They will be selected based on how they will use the plate to raise funds for their own work and for Dollars for Dili.

Bidding is now open on C100, with PicklesPlus kindly providing its online auction services free-of-charge. To bid on C100 visit https://www.picklesplus.com.au/Catalog/Charity&SpecialEvents/Charity/AllItems, or to register your not-for-profit or charitable organisations interest, visit Canberra100.com.au.

I could name about a dozen, out of probably 50, well healed Canberrans who would pay $10K for these plates, if so inclined. We mugs have no hope.

So, name them! No point skiting without the name-dropping!

A three digit original ACT number plate is now worth about $15,000 average price. These Centenary plates are mere trinkets.

Speaking of personalised plates, is there a registry where you can look up existing ones? I might want to get one, but there’s no point if the one I’d want is taken.

My understanding is, pre-computer database you could check the available numeric plates on a hard copy print out (not sure about other formats), but since the advent of computer technology we’re regressed to not being able to search. You’ll just need to prepare a list of preferences and call up and ask via Canberra Connect where they will search on your behalf, which is still reasonably efficient.

If you email rus@act.gov.au then someone will reply and let you know if the plate you want is taken or not.Otherwise you have to go to Motor Registry (can probably ring them up too) and ask them.

Yesterday, I saw the Canberra Licence plate simply 001 -was wondering if this was the first plate issued or if that one would just have been 1 (without the 00s). It was on an ordinary looking car as well.
