Currencies are a type of money that is used as a medium of exchange for goods, services, or financial assets.
They are issued by governments or central banks and are the principal means of facilitating trade and commerce both inside and across borders.
Currency codes are numeric numbers used in the foreign exchange market to identify a country’s currency.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) created and maintains them.
Currency codes are used worldwide in international banking, business, and currency trading.
The criteria for currency codes are established by the ISO 4217 standard.
