for the Australia-based



Founded in April 1981, the Australia-based Number Plate Collector’s Club (NPCC), boasts about 1000 members world-wide, 50 or so who live in the USA and CANADA.  NPCC members share and study the history of, as well as collect Australian license plates and other associated registration information. 


“The club's aims are to promote the hobby of collecting number-plates and research their history, encompassing any allied interests such as registration labels, souvenir plates, photography of plates, and provide a forum to promote the exchange of information and an avenue for contacting other collectors.” (Courtesy of NPCC’s main website)

NPCC issues quarterly newsletters, which are published and distributed in January, April, July, and October.  The focus is mostly Australia, with some US and other international plates thrown in for balance.  The newsletter is very photo-intensive, picturing hundreds of Australian plates, many of which are in color.  If you are interested in purchasing any of the past newsletters I have the following still available, or you can contact Craig Jeffries at PO Box 719, Hamilton, NSW 2303, AUSTRALIA.
