    1. (historical) The symbol for the Portuguese Timor escudo.
    2. (historical) The symbol for the Portuguese escudo.
    3. The official symbol for the Cape Verdean escudo.

Usage notesEdit

The symbol can be considered a stylistic variant of $ but is the official symbol for the Cape Verdean escudo, however because of the continued lack of support in Unicode, a single bar dollar sign is frequently employed in its place even for official purposes.

It is placed as a decimal point between the escudo and centavo values (e.g., 2 50).
