World Currency Symbols

This page is a list of symbols used in everyday life to denote that a number is a monetary value, such as the dollar sign "$", the Pound sign "£", and the Euro sign "€".
IMPORTANT - We also maintain a full list of three-letter codes used internationally to distinguish one currency from another, such as "USD" for the United States Dollar, "GBP" for the United Kingdom Pound, and "EUR" for the Euro. To see a complete list of all of these codes, refer to our - ISO 4217 Type Currency Code List.
This page is under constant development and was last updated July 6, 2011. We rely on input from people like you to keep it as complete and accurate as possible.

Each currency symbol is presented first as a graphic, then in two "Unicode-friendly" fonts: Code2000 and Arial Unicode MS. The graphic symbol in the first column will always be visible, but the symbols in the other columns may or may not be available, depending on which fonts are installed on your computer.
Note that of the two fonts used above, only Code2000 is complete. The other fonts have missing elements, which will appear as hollow boxes. No currency symbol is a hollow box; a hollow box always means that a font does not contain a symbol for that currency.
  • Code2000 is a highly recommended shareware font that contains all the currency symbols listed above. You can download it download it here.
  • Arial Unicode MS is a common font included with certain Microsoft products.
If you have both fonts installed, you may notice that the symbols vary slightly in design from one font to another. This is normal, as there are often multiple accepted ways of rendering a currency symbol. For example, in the United States, the dollar sign is sometimes rendered with two vertical lines, and sometimes with one, both of which are acceptable. (However, in most other parts of the world, a dollar sign with two vertical lines is never used.)
To install the Code2000 font, use the link above to download it and save it somewhere on your computer. Then, unzip the downloaded file and read the enclosed LICENSE.TXT file for the details on the shareware terms of use.
To find out how to work with currency symbols in your documents, scroll down to the How To Work With Currency Symbols section.
To view and work with currency symbols on your computer, you first need to have fonts installed that are capable of displaying them. The only font we know of that contains all symbols is the Code2000 shareware font by James Kass. We therefore recommend that you download and install the Code2000 font. (See the fonts section above on how to do this.)
Once the Code2000 font is installed, you can begin using the symbols in your documents.
Using Currency Symbols in Microsoft Word XP / 2003
  • Ensure that you have Code2000 downloaded and installed. (See above for details)
  • Start a new document Microsoft Word, or open an existing Word document into which you wish to place the currency symbol.
  • Open the font selector by clicking Format > Font. (See screen shot)
  • Select the Code2000 font, and then click OK. (See screen shot)
  • Open the symbol selector by clicking Insert > Symbol. (See screen shot)
  • A new window will open up called Symbol. (See screen shot)
  • Look up the Unicode: Hex code from the above table, enter it in the Character Code field, and click Insert. (See screen shot)
  • The symbol will now be in your Word document. (See screen shot)
Tips and Tricks
  • Once you have a currency symbol inserted in your document in the Code2000 font, you can check to see if the symbol is available in other fonts. Just highlight the currency symbol and then change the font. If the symbol is not supported, it will disappear or be replaced by a hollow box. If this happens, just try another font, or go back to Code2000.
  • If you want to send a document with a special currency symbol to someone else, then they will need to have the font for that symbol on their computer as well. Otherwise, they will not see the symbol. The simplest solution is often to use the Code2000 font in your document, and then have the recipient install the Code2000 font (using the instruction in the fonts section above).

The following emanates from Wikipedia.

A currency sign is a graphic symbol used as a shorthand for a currency's name, especially in reference to amounts of money. They typically employ the first letter or character of the currency, sometimes with minor changes such as ligatures or overlaid vertical or horizontal bars. Today, ISO 4217 codes are used instead of currency signs for most official purposes,[citation needed] though currency signs may be in common use in many other contexts. Few currencies in the world have no shorthand symbol at all.
Although many former currency signs were rendered obsolete by the adoption of the euro, having a new and unique currency sign — implementation of which requires the adoption of new unicode and type formats — has now become a status symbol for international currencies. The European Commission considers part of the success of the euro was the global recognition of the euro sign €. In 2009, India launched a public competition to replace the ₨ ligature it shared with neighboring countries.[1] It finalized its new currency symbol, (INR) on 15 July 2010. It is a blend of the Latin letter 'R' with the Devanagari letter "".
