Well, with UTF-8 in $LANG, you _must_ have UNICODE="yes" in 
/etc/sysconfig/console. So there was nothing wrong in your console file 
except the font itself - it simply doesn't contain the Euro character. 
Please change it to lat0-16 (ir you care only about Euro) or 
LatArCyrHeb-16 (if you want more characters).

You can see all characters in a console font with a "showconsolefont"
