    I'd say "twenty-five dollars and sixty-three cents
    and
    "twenty-five dollars"

    The word "dollars" is usually already written on the check. Thus it would be:

    twenty-five and 63/100 DOLLARS

    Also, I always use XX/100 if the cent amount is zero.

    It would help if this thread had the verb to write a check in it somewhere...: )

    Écrire un chèque, remplir un chèque, faire un chèque?
