A1 M Number Plates Comes Up For Sale
Another unique number plate series, “A1M”, is now up for grabs, joining the long list of special number plate series such as “SMS”, “RIMAU”, “PERFECT”, “NAAM”, “VIP”, and “GT” from 2016 as well as “PATRIOT” from 2015.
1Malaysia Artist Foundation (YA1M) president Datuk Irwan Shah Abdullah told reporters that the main objective of A1M is to raise funds for local artistes or their family members who needassistance,” he said during a press conference today.
Irwan Shah said the “A1M” number plate series are available from A1M 1 to A1M 1000.
“Malaysians looking for unique plates can start placing their bid at Tune Hotel in Jalan Putra as the bidding process, which started today, is on until Oct 2.
“A special launching ceremony will be held in October to announce the list of successful bidders. The successful bidders will get to dine with some of the popular local artistes such as Datuk M. Nasir and Datuk Nancie Foo,” he said.
Irwan Shah said the foundation has received the approval of the Road Transport Department on the sale of the number plate.
How close a series of letters or numbers are to a real name of word: if the match quality is high (and the numbers and letters are very convincing in making a popular word), the value of the registration plate will be higher. This means that a match like 5IMON, for the name Simon, will be worth a lot more than a more obscure set of letters and numbers that are not as convincing a match, such as S17 MMM for the name Sam.
The style of the plate: this means establishing if it is a new-style plate, an older-style format or if it is dateless or Irish, for instance. Other options are that it is a prefix-style plate or a suffix-style plate. New-style number plates, which have been produced since 2001, tend to be the least valuable because they are a bit less appealing to some collectors, plus the rule about not having plates that are newer than your car can also come into play, putting people off from buying a newer-style plate for their older car. Prefix-style number plates, which were in production between 1983 and 2001 can be more popular as more vehicles are entitled to have those licence numbers, and they may have fewer characters in total. Suffix-style plates, issued from 1963 to 1983 are relatively rare, which means they can attract higher prices than prefix-style plates and newer designs. Dateless number plates, also known as cherished number plates, were produced between 1903 and 1963 and are nearly always the most valuable number plate configurations; they have fewer digits and their dateless nature means that people can hide the age of their car. Irish number plates are similar to dateless number plates, especially because they don’t have a year identifier. They also tend to be cheaper than other types of vehicle registration plates.
