1991– other 1991 plates

Personalized plates, 1991 pattern

In some jurisdictions, personalized plates can have up to seven characters. Yukon personalized plates can contain one to six characters including spaces.

  • For six characters, there is no gold panner.
  • For five characters or fewer, the gold panner is optional.

Personalized plates are possible for motorcycles or snowmachines although those are rare. See FRED below.

Personalized plates are issued in pairs. Only one is required on the vehicle, on the rear.

The plate inscription must be approved by Motor Vehicles. The intent is to avoid plates that would be offensive to some. This might be more complicated than it sounds. See Government recalls unique licence plate and Government fixes public relations SNAFU.

Plates often run in themes, some of which appear below.

Personalized plates can contain six or fewer characters including spaces. Plates are not supposed to have dashes but some do. CF-CITY has both a dash and one too many characters.

The gold panner is optional with five or fewer characters.

1991_1 1991_2 Plate 1 was traditionally (pre-1970s) reserved for the Commissioner of the Yukon while during the 1950s and 1960s (maybe longer), plate 2 went to Victoria Faulkner, the Commissioner's secretary; more details. In the current series, plates 1 and 2 are personalized plates in the hands of a private collector.

Theme: potential overlap with other series

1991_1337 This personalized plate 1337 might overlap with veteran's plate with the same number. But why 1337?
1991_ANA01 This personalized plate probably overlaps the much earlier standard passenger plate ANA01. The standard passenger plate does not include a space but one would still think that confusion could result.
1991_DOE77 While DOE77 might seem to overlap into the Dxxnn municipal series, the latter probably will not include letter O once it progresses that far.
1991_MXB70 MXB70 will probably never overlap any other series. The only Mxxnn plates are RCMP and they are still in MPxnn.
1991_RAI24 While RAI24 might seem to overlap into the Rxxnn rental series, rental plates do not include the letter I.
1991_TIM01 There is no Txxnn series yet, but if/when there is, it will not include letter I so there will be no overlap.
