 American Sign Language: "Euro"

Rosie (from Finland) writes:

Hi Dr Bill
I know the signs for dollars and cents as they are in your earlier
lessons, but as I live in Finland, could you please advise on how I
would sign EURO instead of DOLLAR? We only deal in Euros where I live
and at the moment, we spell it out. Is there a sign for EURO in ASL?
Kind regards,



The sign for Euro is (apparently) based on the BSL (British Sign Language) alphabet letter "L".
(Or at least that is what two different people have told me.)
This sign is done by laying the index finger of the dominant hand (faced palm down) perpendicular across the palm of the non-dominant flat hand.
