Provides Currency and Money classes for use in your Python code.

Project description

Build Status Latest PyPI version


The need to represent instances of money frequently arises in software development, particularly any financial/economics software. To address that need, the py-moneyed package provides the classes of Money and Currency, at a level more useful than just using Python’s Decimal class, or ($DEITY forbid) the float primitive. The package is meant to be stand-alone and used directly, or be subclassed further. py-moneyed is BSD-licensed.

Quick start

To install:

pip install py-moneyed


from moneyed import Money, USD

five_dollars = Money(5, USD)

You then use Money objects as if they were numbers, and they behave sensibly. See docs for more information (or the docs/ folder).


Some of the py-moneyed code was first derived from python-money available via this URL: Due to inactivity, it was forked by @limist in 2010 and later moved to the py-moneyed organization.
