Monetary Type

5.2. Monetary Type

Note: The money type is deprecated. Use numeric or decimal instead, in combination with the to_char function. The money type may become a locale-aware layer over the numeric type in a future release.

The money type stores a currency amount with fixed decimal point representation; see Table 5-3. The output format is locale-specific.

Input is accepted in a variety of formats, including integer and floating-point literals, as well as "typical" currency formatting, such as '$1,000.00'. Output is in the latter form.
