**Currency** variables are stored as 64-bit numbers (8 bytes) in a __two's complement__ integer format, and are scaled by 10,000 to give a fixed-point number with 15 digits to the left of the decimal point and 4 digits to the right. This representation provides a range of -922,337,203,685,477.5808 to 922,337,203,685,477.5807. The __type-declaration character__ for a **Currency** variable is **@** (__ANSI__ character 64).

The **Currency** __data type__ is useful for calculations involving money and for fixed-point calculations in which accuracy is particularly important.
