Each currency has its own ISO currency code.
Currency Codes are characters used to identify the currencies. They are defined by International Standards Organization under their ISO 4217 standard. It represents the currencies in two ways: a three-letter alphabetic code or a three-digit numeric code.

Alphabetic Currency Code consists of three letters. In most cases, the first two letters of the alphabetic currency code represent the country (two-letter abbreviation for country name defined by ISO 3166) and the third letter corresponds to the first letter of the currency name.

Numeric Currency Code consists of three digits and is common in countries that do not use the Latin-based alphabet. Generally, the numeric currency codes are similar to the ISO numeric country codes (ISO 3166). The following table displays the currency names, ISO currency codes (alphabetic and numeric) and currency symbols.
