While Bank of Canada paper money has never been available from the banking system in uncut sheets or any format of multiple notes, small numbers of uncut sheets were sold by the Bank of Canada at a premium to collectors just before the $1 and $2 notes were discontinued, and just before the 1986 $5 and 1989 $10 Birds series notes were discontinues. (No other denominations have ever been released.) This collection includes a scarce uncut block of four of each of these notes in crisp uncirculated condition. The banknotes are presented in professional banknote display holders. 

Extremely small quantities of the $5 and $10 sheets were released, making them extremely scare and sought after by collectors today.
