|Oaxaca undated passenger issue (1998 issue). This is one of two revisions of Oaxaca's first-gen plate, this one features red, white and green bands at the top of the plate. This version also uses narrower dies for the state abbreviation at the bottom.
|Oaxaca undated passenger issue (2000 issue). The other version of Oaxaca's first-generation graphic, with a stylized version of the state name at the top and wider dies used for the state abbreviation. Both versions feature the state shape at the bottom left and state seal at bottom right.
|Oaxaca undated passenger issue (2002 issue). This graphic shows a rock formation in the background, which makes the middle set of characters pretty difficult to make out. The state shape and state seal graphics in the bottom corners are carried over from the first-generation plate.
|Oaxaca undated passenger issue (2003 issue). Revised version of the plate, with the graphic made lighter for improved readability of the serial. The bar code was also moved down and to the right, perhaps to get it out of the way of plate frames.
|Oaxaca undated passenger issue (2005 issue). 2005 issue from Oaxaca, featuring the graphic of Benito Juarez in the background and the slogan "2006 Bicentenario de Juarez" at top. The plate celebrates the bicentennial of the birth of Juarez, the five-term president of Mexico. Juarez was born in Oaxaca and served as governor of the state before assuming the presidency.
|Oaxaca undated passenger issue (2009 issue). This graphic featuring a prominent representation of the colors of the Mexican flag was released in 2009. The plate commemorates the Bicentennial of Mexican independence from Spain, and the Centennial of the start of the Mexican Revolution, both of which occur in 2010.
|Oaxaca undated passenger issue (2013 issue). This graphic was introduced in 2013 and features a silhouette of a golden eagle as depicted on the coat of arms for Mexico. Also featured are the government logo and state seal at the bottom corners.
|Oaxaca undated passenger issue (2019 issue). New national standards were established by Mexico's Secretary for Communications and Transport starting in 2017, resulting in a flood of new issues. These standards dictate the placement of graphic elements on the plates, mostly restricted now to the top and bottom of the plate. Oaxaca released this new, compliant issue, which also features 3M's HD sheeting with a textured background and prominent "SCT" security mark down the center of the plate.
