Purchase a Piece of Oregon History
Oregon schoolchildren created the original Pacific Wonderland license plate in honor of Oregon’s 100th birthday. The license plate featured the colors of the state flag, a blue background with yellow font, and the words “Pacific Wonderland” printed below the plate number. Oregon issued the original Pacific Wonderland plates for five years between 1959 and 1964. Re-released in 2009 to celebrate Oregon’s sesquicentennial, the current version of the plate features the same bold design with the addition of the Oregon 150 logo.
A One-Time Investment
These special plates cost $100 at the time of purchase (in addition to the DMV’s standard plate fee and regular registration fee), but unlike other Oregon specialty plates, this is a one-time charge — you won’t pay any additional fees when you need to renew your registration. This $100 fee is split evenly between OHS and the Oregon State Capitol Foundation, funding each institution’s critical educational work.
