Is anyone aware of a list of plural names of currencies? I don't really care what conventions are used. I just want to avoid using an obviously wrong plural form.

Of course there are many, many other named coins and currencies. Some of which, yes, may be irregular. However, the anglicized standard pluralization (stick an 's' on it, basically) is accepted in most cases.
A simpler approach could be to check the dictionary as and when the need arises for an individual currency-name; e.g.,
lev (lf) n. pl. lev·a (lv) (TFD)
Take off from the TFD Currency Table: Listed by Country, look up the currency against the country, say if the currency is lev, click on it to go to the respective definition page. Alternately, use the Currency Table: Listed by Basic Unit (Bold) and Subunit, on the same page.
The default plural, of course, is the usual +s, so if the definition page does not expressly show a plural, you know.
