JavaScript Currency Formatting


Hi. I needed to Turkish currency formatting. I asked stackoverflow community.

They advice me the Numeral.js library. I think it’s a useful library. I asked myself. Why do I need a library? I didn’t need jQuery or any other library. We can use Intl.NumberFormat. It’s also simple to use.

How we use?

var price = 1500
var currency_symbol = "₺"

var formattedOutput = new Intl.NumberFormat('tr-TR', {
    style: 'currency',
    currency: 'TRY',
    minimumFractionDigits: 2,

return formattedOutput.format(price).replace(currency_symbol, '')

We replaced currency symbol because we needed only price value.


  • style: Formatting type
  • currency: Which country’s currency?
  • minimumFractionDigits: Decimal setting

See jsFiddle for example:
