<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="
http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">

 <xsl:template match="product">
  <xsl:copy-of
select="(price[currency='US'],price[currency='CA'],price[currency='FR'])[1]"/
>
 </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>


on the xml you posted then you get

<price>

<amount>20.00</amount>

<currency>US</currency>

</price>


Does you real code have a path step  /xxx after the comma expression? (that
would sort into document order)
