Proofread, people.

According to the Guardian, the Central Bank of Ireland recently issued a silver €10 coin commemorating James Joyce's Ulysses. Unfortunately, in addition to a portrait of the author's face and a short quotation from the book's third chapter, the coin also features an extra word, making the selection a misquote. The bank has apparently justified the error by describing the image as an "artistic representation" of the author and text, which wasn't meant as a literal representation. To which I say: nice try.
