Glyph for U+20AC

U+20AC Euro Sign

U+20AC was added in Unicode version 2.1 in 1998. It belongs to the block U+20A0 to U+20CF Currency Symbols in the U+0000 to U+FFFF Basic Multilingual Plane.

This character is a Currency Symbol and is commonly used, that is, in no specific script.

The glyph is not a composition. Its width in East Asian texts is determined by its context. It can be displayed wide or narrow. In bidirectional text it is written as end of a European number, e.g., a currency symbol, from left to right. When changing direction it is not mirrored. U+20AC prohibits a line break after it, if it is followed by a number. The glyph can be confused with one other glyph.

The CLDR project calls this character “euro” for use in screen reading software. It assigns these additional labels, e.g. for search in emoji pickers: currency, EUR.

The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

The euro sign () is the currency sign used for the euro, the official currency of the eurozone and adopted, although not required to, by Kosovo and Montenegro. The design was presented to the public by the European Commission on 12 December 1996. It consists of a stylized letter E (or epsilon), crossed by two lines instead of one. Depending on convention in each nation, the symbol can either precede the value (for instance, €10), or follow the value (for instance, 10 ), often with an intervening space.
