Logo Design for Currency Units – A Quick View on Currency Signs of the World

October 21, 2009 by

Currency logo design or currency signs to be more precise, are special symbols used to depict names of currency units of respective countries or regions. Abbreviations are also used parallel with special symbols according to certain requirements and are referred to as currency codes. Most countries do not have exclusive currency logos designs or symbols of reference to their monetary units therefore they only use abbreviated text or currency code as their currency sign.

This article takes a quick view of the logos design used for some currency units of the world usually referred to as currency signs.

* Euro sign is the logo design for currency sign used for the euro, the official currency of the Eurozone in the European Union. It is in use since 1996 and the names of the 4 designers who developed the euro currency logo design have been kept secret.

* The US dollar logo design $ was first used in British North America where it was adopted as U.S. currency in 1785, together with the term “dollar” and the $ sign. The dollar sign is also used as logo design for many other currencies such as Mexican peso, Canadian, Australian and Singapore dollars, Nicaraguan córdoba, Tongan pa’anga, Brazilian real, Cape Verde escudo, Chilean peso etc.

* The currency logo design for the British pound is the symbol £ also used for the Italian lira with two slashes before the euro replaced the lira. A few other countries use the same symbol as their currency signs.

* The Japanese currency is called yen with the symbol ¥ as its logo design. It was first adopted in 1871 by the Meiji government.

* The symbol is the currency logo design for the French franc now replaced by the euro. The inception of the French franc is considered to be in the year 1360.

* The symbol is the currency logo design for the Chinese yuán. It was first introduced during the late nineteenth century around 1889.

This was a quick glance at few of the currency signs. More on currency logos design will follow in due course.
