There are about 84 different kinds of currency symbols worldwide used to represent the existing 180 currencies. In the early days, a group of countries would share a particular currency that they later modified to create a country-specific currency. Thus, there are several legal tenders with the same symbol but different names and forex codes existing in the market.
The seven major currencies across the world are CAD (Canadian Dollar), USD (US Dollar), EUR (Euro), AUD (Australian Dollar), GBP (Pound Sterling), and CHF (Swiss Franc). These have gained this position due to their global usage and trading volume.
There are multiple explanations for why most currency symbols tend to have two lines. The most plausible reason is to distinguish a currency symbol from the usual alphabet even if it is written in older typography.
However, if you dig deeper, every country has its own rationale behind using two strikes, slashes or lines in its currency symbol.
