The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

The dollar sign, also known as peso sign, is a symbol consisting of a capital "S" crossed with one or two vertical strokes ($ or S | | {displaystyle {mathsf {S}}!!!{{ig |}!{ig |}}} ), used to indicate the unit of various currencies around the world, including most currencies denominated "peso" and "dollar". The sign is also used as an element of several compound currency symbols, such as the Brazilian real (R$) and the Nicaraguan córdoba (C$).

The one- and two-stroke version are often considered mere stylistic (typeface) variants, although in some places and epochs one of them may have been specifically assigned, by law or custom, to a specific currency. The Unicode computer encoding standard defines a single code for both.

In most English-speaking countries that use that symbol, it is placed to the left of the amount specified, e.g. "$1", read as "one dollar".
