two euros/pounds and twelve cents.
This is the formal way to say it (although in the case of pounds it would be "12 pee", but more frequent would be: "two twelve" (the dollars/euros and the cents, or pounds and pence, are understood).
"Two twelve" could also be 212 pounds/dollars/euros, say if you are buying a piece oif furniture, but I you are buying only a kilo of tomatoes you woud take it as two dollars/euros/pounds and 12 cents/pence.

In British English we would say two pound twelve/ten pound twelve, or, more often than not, we miss out the "pound" e.g. £2.50 = two fifty. "And" is never really used.

'P' refers to pence in British currency (equivalent of cents in U.S or euros). E.g. £0.99 = 99p

In Australia, we would say either two dollars twelve, or two dollars and twelve cents.

Perdón, debía haber puesto "pi". Es decir, en vez de pronunciar la palabra "pence", se dice "pi", sin más (como pis, pero sin la ese al final).
E.g. : 99p (una libra menos un penique) "ninety-nine pi".
