I can't speak for the whole of the last two centuries, but certainly
current American bills and coins do not use either symbol. The bills
in common use say ONE DOLLAR, FIVE DOLLARS, TEN DOLLARS, and TWENTY
DOLLARS; the coins say ONE CENT, FIVE CENTS (the name "nickel" is
informal), ONE DIME, and QUARTER DOLLAR. The bills are also marked
