Show[(plt = Plot[x^2, {x, 0, 100}]), Ticks ->
{Automatic, ((Ticks /. AbsoluteOptions[plt, Ticks])[[2]] /.
{val_,
lbl_, len_List, sty_List} :>
{val,
NumberForm[lbl, DigitBlock -> 3], len, sty})}]

Show[(plt = Plot[x^2, {x, 0, 100}]), Ticks ->
{Automatic, ((Ticks /. AbsoluteOptions[plt, Ticks])[[2]] /.
{val_,
lbl_, len_List, sty_List} :>
{val,
NumberForm[lbl, DigitBlock -> 3, NumberSigns -> {"-\$", "\$"}],
len, sty})}]
