ISO Currency Code
ISO currency code standards are periodically updated and published. Examples of ISO currency codes include the three-letter codes for the euro (EUR); U.S. dollar (USD); pound sterling (GBP); Japanese yen (JPY); Australian dollar (AUD); Swiss franc (CHF); and New Zealand dollar (NZD). These codes are used in foreign exchange markets, such as forex and currency futures. Each of the three-letter alphabetic codes have a corresponding three-digit numeric code. For example, the three-digit numeric code for the U.S. dollar (USD) is 840.
