Is there a font that supports the Spesmilo?


Long story, but I am writing/typing some documents and stories, most of them need the Spesmilo (₷ <- under most fonts it shows up as a mesh). Even unifont doesn't support it -_-

Anyone know of a font that has this character?

Umm... Heres the wikipedia page if that helps: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spesmilo

According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicod...rison_of_fonts, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WenQuanYi#Zen_Hei has only two currency symbols unimplemented - sod's law dictates that the spesmilo is going to be one of them, but you may as well give it a go...

What are you doing? Typesetting some early 20th century Esperanto documents?

EDIT: Huzzah! http://www.fontspace.com/unicode/cha...-spesmilo-sign has 20 of them, http://www.fontspace.com/thatcher-ulrich/tuffy being a nice-looking sans-serif.

Thank you

I am working on a currency history project and some other related things, I tried using a picture but it messed up the formatting.
