EUR or €?

Question:

When writing out an amount in euros, should I use the currency symbol or the international currency code EUR?

Answer:

If you are writing out an amount in euros, use the currency symbol or euro sign instead of the international curency code EUR, which is used primarily in international trade.

Like the dollar sign, the euro sign goes before the amount and is not separated by a space: €20.25, €170.
