Can't display currency symbols in SQL Query reslts

Hello all, I'm having trouble displaying currency symbols in my MySQL querys when I display them in a table.

I've tried varying combinations of Type and Collation but to no avail.

Is there a simple fix or do I need to add the symbol via php on my web page?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Just to confirm in the Price Field of my database I should type, for example:

&pound 9.99  to display £ 9.99

Thanks for the speed of your response.

It would be better if you use two columns, one for price (double) and other for sign (varchar).
and to display concate thm.
