escape dollar sign in es6 string literal

I am using the new string literal syntax of javascript es6 Docs Here and I am not quite sure how to escape the dollar sign that is used to break the string to add a parameter. Here is what I am trying to do:

var response = `I consent to my credit card being charged in the amount of
$ ${ total } for the purchase of ${ item.title } and any
applicable sales tax.`


that works fine... but I would really prefer to not have that space
$ ${title}


that leaves the end result looking like :


... in the amount of $ 25.99 for the purchase...


I would really rather prefer


... in the amount of $25.99 for the purchase ...


I guess that is ok, or obviously I could use the old way that still works, but it would be nice to know how to fix this. I linked to the Mozilla docs , and I can't find anything in there about it, hopefully someone has an idea how to fix this
