$550,000 is the way to write five hundred and fifty thousand dollars in numbers.

Another way you could write this is $550,000.00. This way shows that there are no cents involved in this amount of money.

The comma in $550,000.00 is there simply to break up the large numbers. The comma separates each group of three digits so if the amount in question was one million dollars, there would be an extra comma needed to separate the first digit from the following three digits. This would be written as $1,000,000.00. The comma is used in numbers in all English texts.

Some, however also use spaces from time to time. This is known as the SI writing style. This style is the International system of units. Using this style, five hundred and fifty thousand dollars would appear as $ 550 000.00. The comma is used as a decimal separator in some European and Latin American countries, instead of the decimal point. $550,000,00.  This wouldn't cause confusion as the final two digits are separated from the others by a comma and therefore must be cents, whereas if there were three digits at the end separated from the others by a comma, then no cents would be involved.

The sign at the beginning of the amount is the dollar sign. The dollar sign originated in the 1770s, when it referred to as the Spanish-Mexican peso (the Spanish dollar). It was adopted in British North America as the currency in 1785. The dollar sign is said to have derived from the Spanish coat of arms that was engraved on Spanish colonial silver coins. These coins were in circulation in America and Asia at the time. Two small S-shaped ribbons were wrapped around the Pillars of Hercules that appeared on the coins. Another possible explanation for the origin of the sign is that the abbreviation for pesos was 'ps'. The s started to be written over the p. This developed into the $ mark.
