Homer on the Euro?

homer-simpson-euro
I saw this image online and I must say I was notably curious. The fact that someone would spend time to alter a common coin enough to be the likeness of Homer Simpson was both a political as well as a comedic statement. This was not the work of a hack — look at the likeness!  Perhaps Hugo Chavez hired some out of work ninja/graphic artist with a penchant for metal work to deal King Juan a little diss on his home turf.  I just wonder if there are anymore of these and if they might turn up on eBay soon.  Evidentally, the shopkeeper (seen above holding the coin next to a “normal” one) who found this coin has been offered 20 Euros for it but has- so far – passed up the buyers’ offers.  (Below) An example of the Euro coin in question prior to its “augmentation”.
