Try this ..

   Dim regex As System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex = New System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex("^[0-9]\d*(\.\d{0,9})?%?$")
        Dim match As System.Text.RegularExpressions.Match = regex.Match("0.9")

        Dim a As String

        If match.Success Then
            a = "CURRENCY"
        Else
            a = "NON CURRENCY"
        End If

        Console.WriteLine(a)

You could also simply try to parse the text as a double value; e.g. -
Module Module1
	Sub Main()
		Dim values = {"123+", "123", "123."}
		Dim dblOut = 0.0
		For Each value In values
			If Double.TryParse(value, dblOut) Then
				Console.WriteLine("{0} is a valid double value; Currency format - {1:C2}", value, dblOut)
			Else
				Console.WriteLine("{0} is not a valid double value", value)
			End If
		Next
		Console.ReadLine()
	End Sub
End Module

Open in new window

Produces the following output -Capture.JPG

I see no reason why Pawan's recommendation shouldn't work, but you have to remember to convert the matched value into a double in order to apply the currency format.  Proof of concept:
Imports System.Text.RegularExpressions
Module Module1
	Sub Main()
		Dim values = {"123+", "123", "123."}
		Dim expression As New Regex("^[0-9]\d*(\.\d{0,9})?%?$")
		Dim dblOut = 0.0
		For Each value In values
			If Double.TryParse(value, dblOut) Then
				Console.WriteLine("{0} is a valid double value; Currency format - {1:C2}", value, dblOut)
			Else
				Console.WriteLine("{0} is not a valid double value", value)
			End If

			Console.Write("Using Pawan's solution -")
			Dim match = expression.Match(value)
			If match.Success Then
				Console.WriteLine("{0} is a valid double value; Currency format - {1:C2}", value, Convert.ToDouble(match.Value))
			Else
				Console.WriteLine("{0} is not a valid double value", value)
			End If

			Console.WriteLine()
		Next
		Console.ReadLine()
	End Sub
End Module

Open in new window
