Hello, Krish,   

RadSpinEditor is a themable alternative to the standard Windows Numeric Up Down control. It allows users to set/edit a number in a text box by using up and down buttons however extends this functionality by providing skinning and consistent look and feel with the other controls in the Telerik UI for WinForms suite.

In order to show the currency symbol, it is recommended to use a RadMaskedEditBox with currency mask:

this.radMaskedEditBox1.MaskType = Telerik.WinControls.UI.MaskType.Numeric;
this.radMaskedEditBox1.Mask = "C";
this.radMaskedEditBox1.Value = 123.45;

However, you can add a RadLabelElement to the RadSpinEditor and display the CurrencySymbol:

RadLabelElement currencyLabel = new RadLabelElement();
currencyLabel.Text = NumberFormatInfo.CurrentInfo.CurrencySymbol.ToString();
currencyLabel.Padding = new System.Windows.Forms.Padding(0, 0,2, 0);
RadTextBoxItem tbItem = this.radSpinEditor1.SpinElement.TextBoxItem;
StackLayoutElement spinElementLayout = this.radSpinEditor1.SpinElement.Children.Last() as StackLayoutElement;
DockLayoutPanel dockPanel = new DockLayoutPanel();
DockLayoutPanel.SetDock(tbItem, Telerik.WinControls.Layouts.Dock.Left);
spinElementLayout.Children.Insert(0, dockPanel);
