Many cantons auction car signs with attractive numbers. For example, a St. Gallen resident paid 135,000 francs for “SG 1”. But even the highest amount is often of no use: some cantons keep the very attractive numbers and use them for extraordinary purposes.

If you have the car number 1, you will attract many envious glances. But this number is not available everywhere. The cantons deal with special license plates very differently. This is shown by a survey by the consumer magazine “Espresso” by Radio SRF 1.

The canton of Lucerne has given the number plate “LU 1” to the Verkehrshaus Luzern, for example. There, the sign now adorns vintage gifts when they are photographed. "The vehicle owners are very proud when they see the number one on their vehicles," says Olivier Burger from the Museum of Transport.

135,000 for "SG 1"

“SZ 1”, on the other hand, has always belonged to the same family since the canton of Schwyz has had cars. "Today a grandson of the original owner drives with the number", says Josef Blersch, head of the tourist office. The number is passed on from generation to generation.

Sometimes the number one is assigned to a private owner who has bought the number for a lot of money. The “SG 1” sign, which was awarded for 135,000 francs, is suspect here.

The “GR 1” sign hanging on the Graubünden government's official car is probably the most elegant on the road. "The regional presidents of Germany, Austria and Liechtenstein have all been chauffeured through Graubünden with this special number," remembers Gian-Franco Donati, head of the road traffic office.
