Hi Karl, 
Greetings from Syncfusion. 
Query: I have been trying to change the currency displayed in my grid view from '$' to '£'. Is there anyway of doing this?  
We have validated your query and created a sample based on your requirement. For Internationalization and localization, you need to include cldr files into your application. You need to download cldr-data globally in any location by using below command. 
npm install cldr-data 
After installing cldr-data, you can find cldr-data for all locale in this location(node_modules->cldr-data->main). You need to copy the required(or all) locale cldr-data and paste into your application folder(Scripts->cldr->main->paste copied cldr files). 
You need to include cldr-data into your application and refer file location in index.cshtml file like below code example. Please find the below code example and sample for your reference. 

[code example] [index.cshtml] 
    <ejs-grid id="Grid" locale="en-GB" dataSource="ViewBag.DataSource" allowPaging="true"> 
        <e-grid-pagesettings pageCount="4" pageSize="5"></e-grid-pagesettings> 
            <e-grid-column field="OrderID" headerText="Order ID" textAlign="Right" width="120"></e-grid-column> 
            <e-grid-column field="CustomerID" headerText="Customer Name" width="150"></e-grid-column> 
            <e-grid-column field="Freight" headerText="Freight" format="C2" width="120"></e-grid-column> 
            <e-grid-column field="OrderDate" headerText="Order Date" type="date" format="yMd" width="10%"></e-grid-column> 
            <e-grid-column field="ShipCountry" headerText="Ship Country" width="150"></e-grid-column> 
    function loadCultureFiles(name) { 
        var files = ['ca-gregorian.json', 'numbers.json','currencies.json', 'timeZoneNames.json']; 
        if (name === 'en-GB') { 
        var loader = ej.base.loadCldr; 
        var loadCulture = function (prop) { 
            var val, ajax; 
            if (name === 'en-GB' && prop === files.length - 1) { 
                ajax = new ej.base.Ajax(location.origin + '/../../scripts/cldr-data/supplemental/' + files[prop], 'GET', false); 
            } else { 
                ajax = new ej.base.Ajax(location.origin + '/../../scripts/cldr-data/main/' + name + '/' + files[prop], 'GET', false); 
            ajax.onSuccess = function (value) { 
                val = value; 
        for (var prop = 0; prop < files.length; prop++) { 
    document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function () { 

Please find the sample in below link.
