Currency formatting options

You can display currency amounts in different ways.

formatting options for currency amounts
Money formatRoundedExample
{{ amount }}1,134.65
{{ amount_no_decimals }}1,135
{{ amount_with_comma_separator }}1.134,65
{{ amount_no_decimals_with_comma_separator }}1.135
{{ amount_with_apostrophe_separator }}1'134.65
{{ amount_no_decimals_with_space_separator }}1 135
{{ amount_with_space_separator }}1 134,65
{{ amount_with_period_and_space_separator }}1 134.65

When using the formatting option amount_no_decimals, the thousands separator (used for digit grouping) is determined from the international set standard for the currency code.

If the decimal number is 50 or greater, then rounded currency formats are rounded up. If the decimal number is less than 50, then rounded currency formats are rounded down.
