Make sure the Symbol is part of the font you are using.


Please following below steps to solve the issue:-

  1. Choose a font that supports your currency symbol.

  2. Copy that supported font file (fontname.ttf) to magento_root/lib/<project_name>/ directory.

  3. Copy both files app/code/core/Mage/Sales/Model/Order/Pdf/Abstract.php and app/code/core/Mage/Sales/Model/Order/Pdf/Items/Abstract.php
    app/code/local/Mage/Sales/Model/Order/Pdf/Abstract.php and app/code/local/Mage/Sales/Model/Order/Pdf/Items/Abstract.php respectively.

  4. Open both newly created files and replace $font = Zend_Pdf_Font::fontWithPath(Mage::getBaseDir() . '/lib/LinLibertineFont/LinLibertine_Re-4.4.1.ttf');
    $font = Zend_Pdf_Font::fontWithPath(Mage::getBaseDir() . '/lib/<project_name>/fontname.ttf');

Hope, if someone follow all these steps the problem should be solved.
