regex to remove 1 character from string conditional

given the string:
"the value is $14 and not $dollar"

I want to remove the $ from the $dollar (characters) not the $14 (numbers).
should look like this:
"the value is $14 and not dollar"

I have this, but it removes the first letter next to the $dollar:

replace(/\$[^0-9]/g, '');

margusG, that is almost perfect, but it only removes one occurrence of the $word.

if given: "the value is $14 and not $dollar but can be $this"

results: "the value is $14 and not dollar but can be $this"
