Thank you for the links, quite mesmerizing!

On emojitracker.com (cumulative counts, but only on twitter, AFAICS),
U+1F4B5 ($) had quite a respectable count of 2932622 (well above the middle
of the page, around 70%ile), U+1F4B7 (pound) had 514536 (around 30%ile),
and U+1F4B4 and U+1F4B6 had around 353K and 388K resp. (around 20%ile, but
10x more than the lowest counts, and about the same frequency as various
individual clock faces).

It is quite evident that the dollar banknote emoji serves as a stand-in for
at least half a dozen of various currencies.
