World Currency Abbreviations

Most countries of the world have their own currencies and a corresponding three-letter acronym that serves as the abbreviation for that currency.

The first 2 letters abbreviate the country name and the third is generally the initial of the currency itself. AUD is the Australian Dollar, for example.

This is the ISO 4217 international standard – a standard published by the International Standards Organization, which delineates currency abbreviations and country codes, among other designations.
The ISO 4217 code list is used in banking and business worldwide.The codes are also used on airline tickets and international train tickets to remove any ambiguity about the price.

Below are the international currency codes for the majority of the world currencies. Silver and gold is also included. These codes facilitate the trading of foreign currencies in the currency market.

The first section consists of the currency details of the top economies in the world, followed by the rest.
