I would like to get my hands on some Zimbabwe dollars--physically, not electronically.

Say, about $100 worth. 

From what I read, the US dollar is buying about 250 billion Zimbabwe dollars right now, so I expect this to be a steamer trunk full of money.  I plan on just keeping it the garage somewhere.  (It's for teaching my econ class about inflation.)

I am in the United States.  I don't want to travel to Zimbabwe to get the cash because I'm afraid that, given the deteriorating situation there, I would probably be kidnapped.

How can I do this?

Well, those guys seem to be selling a few bills, whereas what I'm looking for is a few BRICKS of the currency.

While this could prove to be a lucrative industry, unfortunately the laws of Zimbabwe have not kept up with inflation, and the maximum amount that can be lawfully exported from the country is 250 ZWD.

So an eBay like auction would probably be your best bet.  Would you accept a link to an auction offering "a few bricks of money" as an answer?

Uh, yes.  If you give me the link to a few bricks of money, the $15 is yours.

It doesn't really have to be Zimbabwe dollars.

Wow.  Surprising.
