They work in plain TeX, you just have to load the appropriate font and  
call the appropriate glyph:

\font\tentca=tcrm1000 \def\centa{{\tentca\char162}}
\font\tentcb=ts1-lmr10 \def\centb{{\tentcb\char162}}
\font\tentcc=wasy10 \def\centc{{\tentcc\char103}}
Test: \qquad \$ \qquad {\it\$} \qquad \centa \qquad \centb \qquad \centc
