This could be considered a specific implementation of a more generic prefix/suffix component. I've proposed one here

@fofr great, do you have any research on it? For example do you ever see people try to delete the £, or add another? How does it get read out for screen readers?

@joelanman It's largely just worked. In a prior version we had a £ outside the box but alongside it, or in the label (eg Fee in £) – in those cases users regularly prepended an extra £.

The £ isn't pronounced but some hidden text in the label can keep the currency context, eg "Fee for UK and EU students in £".
