the only application that uses the database, that will be no problem,
because the Euro sign will get stored as character #128 (which doesn't
have any meaning in ISO 8859-1), but it will also be read as #128 and
if you display that in Windows, it will become the Euro sign again.
When your database is/will be also accessed from a web interface or a
Linux/Max application, you will get trouble. In this case you should
take a deep look at Unicode ...
