Always spell out yen. Spell out dollars for whole sums of money or sums of change, but not when there is both. Do not insert a space between the currency symbol and the value.

Examples

  • Correct: five thousand yen, 50 dollars, 50 cents, $50.50
  • Incorrect: Â¥5,000, $50, 50¢, 50 dollars and 50 cents, $ 50.50

Capitalization

Do not capitalize currency.

Examples

  • Correct: one yen, one dollar
  • Incorrect: one Yen, one Dollar

Pluralization

Pluralize dollar to dollars. Do not pluralize yen to yens.

Examples

  • Correct: 50 dollars, 50 yen
  • Incorrect: 50 dollar, 50 yens
All of the rules above apply for all currencies. If you are unsure over the correct plural of any specific currency, consult Google.
