"First In Gold" License Plate

Updated: Thursday, April 11 2013, 09:28 AM EDT

You can now get a special North Carolina license plate to commemorate the state's mining heritage.


The new plate celebrates N.C. mining and declares the Tar Heel State as "first in gold." It features a picture of a prospector panning for gold in a stream. The N.C. General Assembly approved the plate to promote this history and heritage.


How can you get one? At least 300 must be ordered before the DMV will begin manufacturing and issuing them. You can get a mining plate for $20 or a personalized one for $50. The special fee is an annual one that is due in addition to the regular license fee.


For more information on obtaining this tag, call the N.C. Gold Foundation at 800-676-1270 or click here.
