From the following line in a scenario:

Given I have $5 in my account

Cucumber-JVM generated the following step definition:

@Given("^I have $(\\d+) in my account$")
public void I_have_$_in_my_account(int arg1) {
// Express the Regexp above with the code you wish you had

The regex doesn't match my feature until I manually escape the dollar sign, like so:

@Given("^I have \\$(\\d+) in my account$")

Have a look at JavaSnippet and JavaSnippetTest if you want to fix this.
