Public Methods

public static Set<Currency> getAvailableCurrencies ()

Returns a set of all known currencies.

public String getCurrencyCode ()

Returns this currency's ISO 4217 currency code.

public int getDefaultFractionDigits ()

Returns the default number of fraction digits for this currency. For instance, the default number of fraction digits for the US dollar is 2 because there are 100 US cents in a US dollar. For the Japanese Yen, the number is 0 because coins smaller than 1 Yen became invalid in 1953. In the case of pseudo-currencies, such as IMF Special Drawing Rights, -1 is returned.

public String getDisplayName ()

Equivalent to getDisplayName(Locale.getDefault()). See "Be wary of the default locale".

public String getDisplayName (Locale locale)

Returns the localized name of this currency in the given locale. Returns the ISO 4217 currency code if no localized name is available.

public static Currency getInstance (String currencyCode)

Returns the Currency instance for the given ISO 4217 currency code.

Throws
IllegalArgumentException if the currency code is not a supported ISO 4217 currency code.

public static Currency getInstance (Locale locale)

Returns the Currency instance for this Locale's country.

Throws
IllegalArgumentException if the locale's country is not a supported ISO 3166 country.

public String getSymbol (Locale locale)

Returns the localized currency symbol for this currency in locale. That is, given "USD" and Locale.US, you'd get "$", but given "USD" and a non-US locale, you'd get "US$".

If the locale only specifies a language rather than a language and a country (such as Locale.JAPANESE or {new Locale("en", "")} rather than Locale.JAPAN or {new Locale("en", "US")}), the ISO 4217 currency code is returned.

If there is no locale-specific currency symbol, the ISO 4217 currency code is returned.

public String getSymbol ()

Equivalent to getSymbol(Locale.getDefault()). See "Be wary of the default locale".

public String toString ()

Returns this currency's ISO 4217 currency code.

Returns
  • a printable representation of this object.
