There are seven different available currency symbols, including the dollar, on the iPhone's English keyboard. They are the ruble sign, yen sign, euro sign, dollar sign, cent sign, pound sign, and the won sign. Other currency symbols may be available on keyboards in other languages. To access the currency symbols:

  • Open an app you can type in, such as Messages or Notes.

  • With the keyboard on screen, tap the 123 button in the lower left corner.

  • Tap and hold your finger on the dollar sign.

  • Your other currency options will pop up. Slide your finger to the currency symbol you want to use.

That’s it!
