One of California's most popular specialty license plates has been redesigned.

The "whale tail" specialty plate was first produced in 1997 but the California Coastal Commission decided to seek out a new design after a royalty battle with the original artist.

The new plate was unveiled Tuesday and is the collaboration of two artists and retains the popular "whale tail" theme.
