I think this question has been beaten to death...do a search on this site and you will find the answers you are looking for....and probably won't like them :'(

1 brick = 4 bundles
1 bundle = 10 straps
1 strap = 100 notes

4000 notes is kinda hard to get... and believe me... I've tried!

If you have a good relationship with your bank, you may be able to get a strap or two per week...

Personally I have tried to develop a good relationship with 3-4 banks and try to get a strap from each every fortnight.

Actually unless things have changed...

1 bundle=100 notes
10 bundles=brick
4 bricks=super block

I have never heard of a block or super block... course I'm also very new to this hobby and the only place I had ever found information about this was on the U.S. BEP web site. Interesting how there is two terminologies to describe the exact same thing. Man I love learning!!

Hi,

I can tell you, it's not easy like they said.

However, if you are with RBC (other banks probably do this also), you'll need a special command and there's fees.

I know DesJardins you can call directly at the branch and you just ask.

You have to specify new notes, if not you'll probably get old stuff.

See my banknotes collection at http://banknotes.davidbelanger.net/.
Find special numbers for your banknotes quickly by using this tool. Useful for the bundles.
