7.3.2. Order of the currencies and ISO codes

When using currency abbreviations, the ISO codes 4217 should be used (see Annex A7 and the maintenance agency’s website).

Member State currencies

When listing Member State currencies, place the euro first followed by the other monetary abbreviations in alphabetical order of the currency code (ISO codes 4217).

Other currencies

For reasons of protocol, other currencies should follow the currencies of Member States and be listed according to the same criteria, i.e. in alphabetical order of the currency code (ISO codes 4217). The same rule applies to a list of currencies in running text if there are no other criteria for classification.
