Transport and Technical Services is auctioning number plates which are either short or easy to remember and are therefore popular with the public.
The auction takes place at 10.30am on Saturday 7 December at The Great Hall at Highlands College. There are 51 number plates available including:
The full list of plates will be advertised in a Jersey Evening Post gazette advertisement on Friday 6 December.
It has been several years since these kinds of number plates were publicly auctioned and therefore there is likely to be great interest.
The Minister for Transport and Technical Services, Kevin Lewis, said “People are prepared to pay to use a particular number plate, maybe because it’s easy to remember or it has particular relevance. For instance, someone might want to bid for JSY50 as a birthday present for someone who is 50 years old. On past experience some plates may receive bids for more than £50,000.”
