Jersey Number Plate Auctions For 60000
A TWO-digit registration plate could fetch up to £60,000 when it is auctioned on Wednesday.
The J27 plate, which is assigned to a vehicle of ‘insignificant value’, has a guide price of £50,000 to £60,000.
It is due to be auctioned by Simon Drieu and Co at Glencoe Auction Rooms in St Lawrence from 11 am.
The auction comes a week after another number plate, J999, which had a guide price of £30,000 to £40,000, failed to sell.
A TWO-digit registration plate has sold for £73,000 at auction - making it the Island's most expensive number plate.
The J27 plate, which is assigned to a vehicle of ‘insignificant value’, had a guide price of £50,000 to £60,000.
It was auctioned by Simon Drieu and Co at Glencoe Auction Rooms in St Lawrence on Wednesday.
Last week another number plate, J999, which had a guide price of £30,000 to £40,000, failed to sell.
“Once you’ve bagged that number plate – if it’s a good one it adds value to it. Some are iconic and will be sought after. Some of the best are simple but exquisite.”
The biggest went for £180,000 in May last year – for KR15 HNA – which was a new British record for the most expensive current style personalised registration plate.
Today, plates with just one number and two letters cost an estimated £60,000, 20 times more than the early 1990s, when drivers could expect to pay somewhere between £3,000 to £5,000.
A DVLA spokesman said: “Many people enjoy displaying a personalised registration number and the general sale and auctions remain extremely popular with the public.
“Since we began selling personalised registrations we have raised around £2.3 billion and all the money raised is passed to the Treasury.”
