I just found an American keyboard (I'm from Great Britain, so obviously I only have had UK keyboards) and I was wondering, if the US one has a dollar symbol, why haven't they put a cent one? :|

The dollar sign is also used in programming language, so it's simply more common. As others have said, there's no need for a specific cent key, although there is an ALT key code for it. ALT + 0162
