When drafting contracts that involve any kind of monetary transaction, be sure to nail the correct spelling of currencies in money amounts. Suggestions from Loio's Highlights will help you with that. Loio identifies these common currency spelling mistakes:

Misplaced currency sign or code
Currency sign (e.g. $) or code (e.g. USD) should always come before the numeric money amount. Loio points out when they are written in the wrong order.

Space between currency sign and amount
Currency sign and numeric money amount should not have a space between them.

No space between currency code and amount
Currency code and numeric money amount should have a space between them.

Incorrect dollar abbreviation

Use internationally approved dollar abbreviation forms like USD, CAD, AUD. Loio points out any incorrect dollar abbreviations.


Incorrect euro spelling

The word euro should stay unchanged in the plural form and should not be capitalized. Loio points out any incorrect euro spelling.

Currency stated twice
Do not write out the currency if there is already a sign or code indicated.
