QuestionTrack two types of values within one variable Pin

I'm still new, so I don't know if this is the best way to do what I am needing, and would like some feedback/advice.

I have a class that contains a double value. This double could represent a dollar value or it could represent a percentage value. Only one or the other, it will never have both. At runtime, I will need to be able to tell what type of value this is. Here is what I came up with, which appears to work, but if there is a better way, I would prefer that.
C#
public class Rate
{
     public double Value; // Holds either the dollar or percentage value
}
public class RateDollar : Rate {}
public class RatePercentage : Rate {}

public class TransactionLine
{
   // There's more stuff here, but it's not relevant to show
   public Rate Amount;
}


// Set the rate amount to be a dollar 
myTransactionLine.Amount = new RateDollar();

// I can check the type if needed
if(myTransactionLine.Amount.GetType() == typeof(RateDollar)) // We have a dollar value
if(myTransactionLine.Amount.GetType() == typeof(RatePercent)) // We have a percentage value


For some reason, this seems like it is a clunky workaround. It also seems like it's possible for someone to create the value that is neither a RateDollar or RatePercent, and just as a plain Rate. Is there some way to prevent this, or is there a better way to accomplish what I am trying to do?
