Today I got my first coin with 2008 on it.

I've got it in Aachen :flag-de: . It's a german 2euro. It's a church with the name Hamburg on it.

Is this a special coin?

yes it is.

It is the 2008 German Commemorative 2€ coin featuring the Federal State of Hamburg.

A friend at a snackbar has received these 2008 coins:
Luxembourg: 5c, 20c, 50c, 2€
Austria: 20c
I'm spending some CY coins myself in my neighbourhood.

No. It is not normal...

Acording to your description, it seems that the edge of the coin is similar to the 1€ coin edge... is'n it?

I think there are two possibilities: False coin or Error.

perhaps we'll be able to help you if you put an image here, test the coin weight and so on...

By the way, :flag-uk: smooth= :flag-fr: "lisse"
