On February 14, 2009, the State of Oregon celebrated its 150th birthday. In recognition of Oregon’s 150th birthday, the 2009 Oregon Legislative Assembly directed the Department of Transportation to recreate a limited edition of Oregon’s historic Pacific Wonderland registration plate. The original plates were issued during the centennial year of 1959 and continued to 1964.
The new Pacific Wonderland registration plate is a limited edition plate with only 40,000 sets of plates being manufactured. There is a one-time surcharge of $100 per set of plates paid at issuance, in addition to the $24 plate fee and regular registration fee. There will not be any additional fee charged at the time of renewal besides the standard registration fee.
An Application for Registration
(Form 735-268), must be completed and submitted with the required fees. The plates will be allowed to be transferred to vehicles of the same type, as long as the plates are not damaged, mutilated or otherwise rendered illegible as to be not useful for purposes of identification.
Proceeds of the surcharge will be divided in half between the Oregon State Capitol Foundation and the Oregon Historical Society.
