Stream of coiniousness

As Penelope Cruz's character said to Javier Bardem's in Vicky Cristina Barcelona when he had to remind her that she'd once stabbed him, 'That.'

The Central Bank of Ireland has said it regrets an error on a new commemorative coin that misquotes James Joyce.
The 10 euro coin features an image of the writer and a quote from his groundbreaking novel, Ulysses, which contains an extra word.
Joyce, one of Ireland's most famous writers, wrote: "Ineluctable modality of the visible: at least that if no more, thought through my eyes. Signatures of all things I am here to read."
However, the coin contains a surplus "that" in the second sentence.
Why bother apologizing for only one surplus word?
