    That glyph is different from the others cited for this approved(?) symbol.
    Separate enough not to be unifiable with the others... (Neither of these
    look anything like any of the "finalists".)

    Subheading says: "Currency becomes fifth in the world to have a distinct
    identity". Hmm, silly me, I thought each currency (nearly 300 of them
    worldwide, going by ISO currency codes) had a "distinct identity".

    Even when just looking at currency symbols, then many of them are used for
    more than one currency and even just counting the number of currency
    symbols, there are a lot more than four already...
