I'm wondering if there is supposed to be a white space between the number and the € sign.

100€ or 100 €

This is a grammar/language-specific question, not a typographic question — which @e100's answer proves: €100 would be plain wrong in e.g. Finnish where 100 € is correct. (100€ would be as incorrect too, because it should be said hundred euros not hundredeuros.) –  koiyu Sep 15 '11 at 18:10
    
I think you're right, but that doesn't make the question wrong. I'll amend my answer with a heavy caveat. –  e100 Sep 15 '11 at 18:43

As per Koiyu's comment, this is language/locale specific.

But assuming UK/US English, it's either:

  • €100

  • one hundred Euro(s)

  • 100 Euro

  • 100 EUR [ISO currency code]

I believe in French or German there'd be a space after a currency symbol:

  • € 100
