In Type1 format there are, e.g., the "Adobe Euro" fonts; see
This is a self-extracting zip archive for DOS/Win, which can be 
unpacked by Info-Zip's unzip, too.

A LaTeX package supporting these fonts is "eurosans.sty", 
see the CTAN directory macros/latex/supported/eurosans .

The Adobe fonts are free, they contain the official version of 
the Euro symbol, and they provide boldface and/or italic variants, 
too, so I really consider them as the "canonical" Type1 

In Metafont format there are, e.g., the "eurosym" fonts (created by 
Henrik Theiling), see the CTAN directory fonts/eurosym; they come 
with a suitable LaTeX package.

AFAIK the eurofont package supports all known fonts with Euro symbols;  
a configuration file controls which one is to be used with a certain 
font family.

Many currency symbols are part of the TS1 encoding, which is fully 
implemented in the EC, EC Concrete and EC Bright fonts.
