Hi all, I don't seem to have a cent symbol on my S21 keyboard! Anyone know how to... activate it? I know it's fallen out of fashion, but some of us still use it, I swear!

 
Long pressing on the Dollar symbol does nothing, and I don't have another set of symbols past the !#1 and 2/2 page.
 
Thanks in advance

Here is a workaround.
Copy the ¢ symbol. Open your keyboard settings>smart typing>text shortcut>add
For the shortcut use anything you would like. I used "cent"
For the Expanded phrase paste the ¢ symbol.
Now when you write cent it will autocorrect to ¢ unless you press the check mark to cancel autocorrect.

I used Samsung's Keys cafe app to add the cent symbol to my zero key. So a long press of the zero key pops up a menu and I can select the cent symbol.

I use Microsoft SwiftKey because I don't like the others. There is a ¢ symbol.

Solid tip. This works well enough for me, for the time being. Thank you.
