Currency

Currency names

In general, lowercase the names of currencies, but capitalize the reference to the country or region.

Examples

US dollar

Canadian dollar

Hong Kong SAR dollar

Brazilian real

Specific monetary amounts

When you’re referencing specific amounts of money, use the currency code, followed by the amount, with no space.

Example

The company generated BRL2.89 billion (USD1.42 billion) in net revenue in 2015.

If it’s clear which currency you mean, it’s OK to use just the symbol. When referring to a specific amount in euros, use the euro symbol (€), not the word euros.

Examples

One of the largest companies in the United States, Adatum Corporation generated $1.42 billion in net revenue in 2015.
