You can check for currency by checking to see if VarType(Cell Value) = 6

In tests however there is a flaw in this plan, in that it only seems to recognise the values in £ - if you use the $ symbol (or any other currency) it doesn't recognise it

It will recognise the £ symbol used in currency or accounting format.

a fairly simplistic function for that would be

Function IsCurrency(sSheet As String, sRange As String) As Boolean
If VarType(Worksheets(sSheet).Range(sRange).Value) = 6 Then
    IsCurrency = True
Else
    IsCurrency = False
End If
End Function

 another way would be to check the number format along the lines of

InStr(1, ActiveSheet.Range(sRange).NumberFormat, "$") > 0

and process accordingly - that should pick up all curencies..
