The 8r encoding vector does not 'catch' any glyph named 'oldcurrency',
so it is not available, as long as you are going via TeXBase1 encoding,
as usual.

You need to define a private encoding vector and a related etx file 
which have 'oldcurrency' in the place of currency; then make sure 
that this glyph is substituted for the missing 'currency' in the TS1 
encoding.  I'd say this is rather pointless; nobody needs this symbol!
