Note that you have to have your language environment set up correctly
though (you can do this with `M-x set-language-environment').  In many
LEs, typing `C-q 244 RET' will give you character 164 in latin-1, which
is the `currency sign', not a euro sign (latin-1 doesn't have a euro
sign), and looks quite different.

[I can get `C-q 244 RET' to produce a euro-sign if my language
environment is set to `latin-9', but most other language environment
seem to give me the currency sign.]
