i tried get symbol but it just show €

$currency_symbol = Mage::app()->getLocale()->currency(Mage::app()->getStore()->getCurrentCurrencyCode())->getSymbol();

This is the way of Magento 1.9 to get currency symbol, you are doing it correctly:


If you are getting unusual currency symbol then check the symbol on backend:

  1. Open Magento admin panel, go to System – Manage Currency -> Symbols.
  2. Uncheck "Standard".
  3. Add a new symbol which you need enter image description here
  4. Click "Save Currency Symbol" in the right corner.
  5. Clear cache and check on frontend
