I don't know why Thomas Michael and George Cuhaj included this issue into the catalogs of regular coins. Maybe this piece is unique, or only 100-1000 pieces were issued - nobody knows. Most likely it's just an error, off-metal strike, among many other off-metal strikes. I have never seen it at any auction or shop.

And this is regular circulating type. The issues of 2006-2009 don't cost more than the nominal value (about 5 euro cents). 2002 was only for mint sets. 2003 is rare and expensive; at least 200 euro for VF and much more for UNC.
