Frequently Asked Questions

What are the symbols of all currency?

The first currency ever developed was used in Babylonia beginning in the 2nd century BC. Its symbol was a sheep. The symbol for currency, as we know it today, was developed in the 14th century. The first currency symbol was a cross. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), a currency is the unit of account of a national currency in a country, and is issued by the central bank of that country. Money made by a country’s central bank and used by its government is also considered currency. Currency comes in many forms: coins, banknotes, checks, and electronic money. Some currencies are not physical in form, but rather are units of account represented by accounting ledgers.

How many currency symbols are in the world?

The -blank- currency symbol is the world’s most used symbol, with over 1,000 varieties. We’ve created a list of all the symbols in use in the world today, complete with their history and pronunciation. The average person goes through hundreds of dollars of money each week. That is a lot of money which could be spent on food, rent, utilities, insurance, and other necessities. A large portion of that money is spent in the form of everyday purchases, including buying goods, eating out, and making use of the services offered by the retailers and service providers in our communities.

Which country has a currency symbol?

As you may know, currencies of different countries have different symbols. For example, the Norwegian Krone is called Krone () while the Australian Dollar is represented by ₤ (). In some countries, such as the United States, there are different symbols depending on the type of currency, such as the USD for US Dollars. In Canada, the Canadian Dollar is represented by CDN (), while in Mexico, the Peso is represented by MXN (). If you are looking for the ultimate currency symbol list, then you are at the right place. You can get pretty deep into the world of currencies, but it’s important to remember that most western countries use a dollar sign ($) to represent their currency. The dollar sign (#) has a long history in the US, where it was unknown in 18th century America, and was only used during the time of the American Gold Rush from 1849 to 1857.  But the # was picked up by the British colonies in America and the South, and became popular there as an alternative to the pound sign (£).
