I couldn't just draw out some cash from my account and  bring it back and bet
that they wouldn't notice the anomalous dates.   Oh, I could probably do that
with ones, but I'd want to "age" them (run  them through a washing machine,
forex) just to make sure.  Coins---I  could buy bags of "junk" silver and
then weed out the ones with the wrong  dates (too old OR too new) and keep it
up till I had a lot of those, but it  would be heavy to carry and I couldn't
carry too  much.

Rare foreign coins. You will probably pay a premium. Check the dates.
Small amounts can be raised with not very expensive precious metal  jewelry.
