Monetary Type

Obsolete Type: The money is now deprecated. Use numeric or decimal instead. The money type may become a locale-aware layer over the numeric type in a future release.

The money type supports US-style currency with fixed decimal point representation. If Postgres is compiled with USE_LOCALE then the money type should use the monetary conventions defined for locale(7).

Monetary Type Storage Description Range

numeric will replace the money type, and should be preferred.
