Tom Koutsantonis MP expects number 8 plates to get ‘significant interest’


A custom set of licence plates depicting the lucky number “8” are set to be auctioned for more than $1 million later this year.

Issued in 1906, the number plates were amongst the first in South Australia, and recently returned to the government’s hands.

The Advertiser reported that in 2023, a successful round of auctioning took place which saw government-owned historic plates receive $2.26 million combined.

SA Transport Minister Tom Koutsantonis said he expected “significant interest” when ”number 8” goes to auction later this year.

“I would be very surprised if this doesn’t go for a million dollars,” Mr Koutsantonis said.

“There’s been a lot of interest in numeric plates around the country – often people think number one is the most sought after, but different numbers have different meanings to a lot of people.

“I think this is going to generate dramatic interest.”
