You need to escape the $ sign since it is used for group references. 
Try: "FOOBAR".replaceAll("FOO", "\\$");

Quoting java.util.regex.Matcher#appendReplacement(StringBuffer, String):

"Note that backslashes (\) and dollar signs ($) in the replacement 
string may cause the results to be different than if it were being 
treated as a literal replacement string. Dollar signs may be treated as 
references to captured subsequences as described above, and backslashes 
are used to escape literal characters in the replacement
