There have been shady sellers hawking copies/reproductions for at least a decade (or more). The only thing we can do is report them but often they're Power sellers or the platform doesn't care.

Here's a thread on the subject on a US based forum (Coin Community Forum):

And copies of the 1935 series still sold on etsy:

Are they fake CBN?
Definitely reproductions.  They have been offered on eBay since last fall by a seller out of Israel.  Hard to believe that eBay condones these sales even if the notes are declared reproductions.  I guess there is a market for these based on the number of completed sales this seller has made.

They look a lot like these!!!

Edit:  And ... if you can believe this ... Ebay now has an entire section entitled "Replicas and Reproductions for World Paper Money".  As if calling them Replicas or Reproductions doesn't also mean they are "counterfeit".

Clearly, law enforcement does not consider this an issue (don't know if stating up front that they are replicas makes it okay), but as Gucci or Cartier would take issue if this was happening with their products, doesn't the BoC hold some sort of Copywrite on the design of Canadian notes?  Hmm ...

Thanks Redlock,
I've seen reports of paper currency still in circulation by denomination, likely on the BoC website I don't remember exactly.  But, I'm kind of curious about how many notes are being turned in aka shredded each year and if they collect that kind of data, which they likely do in some form or another, no?
Cheers,
Breanna

I am very certain that the BoC keeps records of banknotes withdrawn from circulation and then destroyed.
Central banks around the world do this. For example, the Bank of England destroyed 20.2 million £5 banknotes and 32.2 million £20 banknotes between March 2023 and February 2024.
In 2023, the Central Bank of Paraguay destroyed 15,580,853 notes of their highest denomonation, the 100,000 guaranies note.
Unfortunately, I don't know where/if the BoC reports about the number or value of banknotes destroyed.  :(

Hi All,

As I often hear of members with connections to get certain info from the BOC  (i.e. ranges, etc.) I was wondering if the BOC keeps records of notes they shred and is the number/amount published anywhere?  Is that information that BOC member contacts can disclose?

Thanks,
Breanna

Wow: just amazing & dramatic Ghost errors! There's these, the double-denomination errors & missing prefixes. No wonder so many of us went "head over heals" for these Journey notes.

Great examples guys- thanks for sharing.
