Twig Components / Methods / currency_name

currency_name(locale = null)

The currency_name filter returns the currency name given its three-letter code:

{# Euro #}
{{ 'EUR'|currency_name }}
{# Japanese Yen #}
{{ 'JPY'|currency_name }}

By default, the filter uses the current locale. You can pass it explicitly:

{# yen japonais #}
{{ 'JPY'|currency_name('fr_FR') }}


The currency_name filter is part of the IntlExtension which is not installed by default. Install it first:

$ composer require twig/intl-extra

Then, on Symfony projects, install the twig/extra-bundle:

$ composer require twig/extra-bundle

Otherwise, add the extension explicitly on the Twig environment:

use Twig\Extra\Intl\IntlExtension;

$twig = new \Twig\Environment(...);
$twig->addExtension(new IntlExtension());
