    I'm sorry but unfortunately we do not have a currency field, other than using one of the payment tools.  The only other option would be to use a text field.  If you set the properties for the field then you can achieve something similar. You can set the Size of the field, change the Validation and add a Default Value, like so:

    To set properties on a field, just click the gear icon next to it in the form builder.

    Hope this helps.

    In addition to above provided information by my colleague ,

    To Create a new PayPal form, open the “Payment Tools” toolbox on the left side and drag “PayPal” icon into your form. You will see two options on the Payment Tools. “PayPal” option allows you to create PayPal forms for PayPal Standard. If you have a  “Payment Payment Pro”, you can use the second option to get users to enter credit card details right on your page.  

    Payment Wizard: Account Information 
    When you add the PayPal field to your form Payment Wizard will launch automatically. You will be asked to enter your PayPal account information. 
    Payment Account:  Enter your PayPal account email address 
    Need Payer Address:  If you will be shipping a product to the user or need address for some other purpose, select Yes.  
    Currency:  Select the currency in which your products will be priced in.
