You can format currency in C# using various methods, here are few

Using Standard Currency formatting in C#

decimal dec = 123.00M;
string ukCurrency = dec.ToString("C", new CultureInfo("en-GB")); // output -> "£123.00"
string usCurrency = dec.ToString("C", new CultureInfo("en-US")); // output -> "$123.00"

Here, "C" (or currency) format specifier converts a number to a string that represents a currency amount.


double price = 1234.25;
string FormattedPrice = price.ToString("N");
// 1,234.25

Here "N"  is used instead of "C".


          var myPrice=110.1211;
		Console.WriteLine(myPrice.ToString("C2")) ;


The number after the C and N indicates upto how many decimals you need string formatted.

C formats the number as a currency string, which includes a currency symbol, default symbol is "$', you can use Culture Info as shown above for any other currency type.


                decimal CurrencyAmount = 1000.39m;
		string moneyValue = String.Format("{0:C}", CurrencyAmount);
		Console.WriteLine("Formatted value: "+ moneyValue);

               //output : 
               //Formatted value: $1,000.39


If your Currency value is not a decimal value

string.Format("{0:#.00}", Convert.ToDecimal(CurrencyValue) / 100);

Hope it helps.
