    When considering a proposal to include the Guarani currency symbol,
    perhaps the Austral of Argentina should also be reviewed.

    The appearance of the symbol used for the obsolete Austral
    currency of Argentina has been reported as "an A with a
    bar through it" and as "double-dashed A". This currency
    was used through 1991.

    This doesn't show up well on this graphic:

    a little better on:

    But, this large picture shows it clearly:

    The above picture was found on the slow-loading page:
    ..which has other examples.

    This short-lived currency apparently was used between circa 1985
    and 1991.

    In the 1800s, there was the "Argentino" currency unit, but I
    don't know if that double barred A glyph was used back then.

    Best regards,
