  • The solid black buffalo was first observed on special graphics in mid-2011 and then appeared on regular personalized and Veteran plates in summer 2012. All new types introduced thereafter feature this new black bison and will not be tracked on this page.
  • *PCO, PCP and PCQ series licence plates were not produced.
  • **5x8" size MC plate high remains stuck at 2DT91 since 2015 even though MC plates were manufactured with solid black bison starting at 5DT01 up to 4EB99. 4x7" MC plates are the new default issue, so we may never see the black bison 5x8" MC plates.
