The getCurrency() method is a built-in method of the java.text.DecimalFomrat class in Java and is used to return the currency which is used while formatting currency values by this currency. It can be null if there is no valid currency to be determined or if no currency has been set previously.

Syntax:

public Currency getCurrency()

Parameters: The function does not accepts a single parameter.

Return Value: The function returns the currency which is used while formatting currency values.

Errors and Exceptions: The function throws UnsupportedOperationException when the number format class doesn’t implement currency formatting

Below is the implementation of the above function:

Program 1:




// Java program to illustrate the
// getCurrency() method
  
import java.text.DecimalFormat;
import java.util.Currency;
import java.util.Locale;
  
public class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Get the Currency Instance
        DecimalFormat deciFormat = new DecimalFormat();
  
        // Stores the values
        String values = deciFormat.getCurrency()
                            .getDisplayName();
  
        // Prints the currency
        System.out.println(values);
    }
}


Output:

US Dollar

Program 2:




// Java program to illustrate the
// getCurrency() method
  
import java.text.DecimalFormat;
import java.util.Currency;
import java.util.Locale;
  
public class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Get the Currency Instance
        DecimalFormat deciFormat = new DecimalFormat();
  
        // Sets the currency to Canadian Dollar
        deciFormat.setCurrency(
            Currency.getInstance(
                Locale.CANADA));
  
        // Stores the values
        String values = deciFormat.getCurrency()
                            .getDisplayName();
  
        // Prints the currency
        System.out.println(values);
    }
}
