Dear hypothetical deities, no. That causes problems with translation,
people not knowing the name of another country's currency in a foreign
language, etc.

There is a standardized internationally-agreed set of 3 ASCII letter
symbols for this reason and this is why people use them.

USD = US dollar
GBP = GB pound
EUR = Euro
CZK = Czech crown (korun/koruny/koruna, depending on quantity, in Czech)

Etc etc.
