Hi Fabrice,

I don't know about the \symbol[EUR], but you can use directly the € symbol as in:

\unexpanded\def\euros#1{#1\,€}
\starttext

\euros{100}
\stoptext
most fonts nowadays have a properly matched euro

\starttext

\unexpanded\def\euros#1{#1\,€}

\euros{100}

\unexpanded\def\euros#1{#1\,\symbol[europe][EUR]}

\euros{100}

\stoptext

We don't load these symbol sets by default. Soon the tex gyre fonts will contain many more symbols which means that we will also get away from some currently traditional symbols taken from math fonts.
