I think it is rather because it is never used alone and does not really represent one hundred, but a multiplier of variable value.
C' represents below a reversed C.
|C' = D = U+ 217E = five hundred
C | C' = CD = ↀ = U+2180 = M = one thousand (cf. mille in French)
|C'C' = DC' = ↁ = U+2181 = five thousand
CCIC'C' = ↂ = U+ 2182 = ten thousand
CCC|C'C'C' = hundred thousand -— not coded in Unicode, why ?
A million is represented by a Saint-Andrew's cross surrounded by a canopy |¯|, it is not coded I believe. I don't know why. I have representations of it.
