Irish coin commemorating James Joyce misquotes “Ulysses”

Ireland's central bank has issued a new silver €10 coin to commemorate James Joyce, which features an illustration of the modernist writer and a quote from his celebrated work, "Ulysses." Except that the quote, taken from the book's third chapter, has been misquoted on the coin.

From the Guardian:

The quote comes from a scene when one of the two main characters, Stephen Dedalus, is walking along Sandymount Strand in the writer's native Dublin.
