Default [Q] System fonts and support for localization

Hello everyone,

I'm a Unity developer, usually my work includes working in Unity3D and compiling for android/iOS/etc..
Using Google's in app billing plugin, I need to support multiple languages, in order to support all currency types (some in foreign languages).
Now, within Unity I use Arial unicode, that supports all the symbols I need, but my question is the effects of running on android.
Do android's OS contain Arial Unicode? can it support it? Does android's system font contain's all the symbols for currencies?

I hope the question is clear, sadly my android development knowledge is lacking.
Any help will be greatly appreciated

The official Android font is Droid Sans.You can find the full character set here:

As for what is included on the devices aside from that, I do not know. (I'm a designer, not a developer)
SM-N9005 International Galaxy Note 3, DBT NB7 Stock
SM-G900F International Galaxy S5, PHN NCE Stock
SM-P905 NotePro 12.2 LTE Black, DBT NC3 Stock

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.
