Alaska License PlatesAs of October 2004, Alaska reverted to the blue on yellow "Last Frontier" passenger plate with the state flag as the standard issue replacing the "Gold Rush" design that has been in use for several years. No additional Gold Rush plates will be issued, but existing plates will be renewed indefinitely. Dirk Starck reports that ERT 999 was the last Gold Rush plate produced.
Starting Jan. 2, 2008, Alaska issued a new design for standard plates to celebrate 50 years of statehood in 2009. These plates were issued through Dec. 31, 2009. The plates are graphic, but registration characters are embossed.
Alaska has returned to the fully embossed Flag - 2 base. Dirk Starck reports the GAA series as somewhat of a low, but he has also seen an FGD series, which would have been from the original batch before the Statehood plates started since the original order of Flag - 2 plates went through FGE 999.
