The most valuable number plates in Queensland are commonly known as ‘q plates’.

As with all other states, it is the nine single-digit plates which are the most sought-after and command the highest prices.

We have some great photos and some not-so-great photos of the single digit q plates.  If you have other photos we’d love to see them.

By clicking on some of the plates below (only Q1, Q3, Q4, Q7Q8 & Q9 at this stage) you will find more photos and information.

You can also scroll down for a larger photo of each plate.

Unfortunately this owner has decided to have his Q2 number plate remade (illegally) in the Victorian heritage plate style.  The car and plate reportedly now reside in Victoria, which is probably how he gets away with it…
