SDU Tools: List of common currencies in SQL Server T-SQL

I regularly need a list of currencies in drop-down lists, and when performing calculations, etc. To make that easy, in our free SDU Tools for developers and DBAs, we added a tool to do just that. It's a view called Currencies.

It's a simple view that returns details of the current official list of common currencies.

For each currency, it returns the 3 character currency code, the name of the currency, the most common symbol that's used for it, the name of its minor unit (like cents for dollars) if there is one, and if so, the number of minor units to every major unit (100 for cents in a dollar).

You can use our tools as a set or as a great example of how to write functions like these.
