TWO-digit number plates are to go on public auction at Glencoe Auction Rooms this weekend, after similar number plates attracted were sold for over £20,000 last year.
Last year J95 was sold for £28,000 and J96 was sold for £22,000. This year’s two-digit number plates on auction are JSY91 and JSY92.
Auctioneer Simon Drieu, of Simon Drieu and Co said: ‘People do like the individuality of having a cherished number plate. Sometimes these numbers do mean something to them.’
In addition to JSY91 and JSY92 being sold on auction, JSY003 is also for sale.
On the popularity of the auction events, Mr Drieu said: ‘Around 100 people attend the auctions. This has been reduced because people have been attending remotely online over the last couple of years.’
In 2020, the Lieutenant Governor’s old number plate, J4, broke the record for a sale of a number plate sold at auction when it was purchased for £380,000. Prior to this, the previous record for a sale of a number plate was £91,000 for J68.
The previous record for a two-digit number plate sold at auction in Jersey was £139,000 in August of this year.
Doors to the auction open at 9am on Saturday, with the auction commencing at 10.30am. For more information visit jerseyauctioneers.com/jerseynumberplates.
