How can I change currency position?

I referred this, But, I have not it app\code\Vendor\Extension\etc\ What should I do?

  • vendor_extension refers to your extension. This means you need to create a new extension where vendor is the module name space or package name and extension refers to module name. – Priyank Sep 27 '18 at 11:51

There is an easy way to change the currency position in the Locale (language) you want in Magento 2 admin

  1. Go from your root folder to /lib/Zend/Locale/Data

  2. Find the lenguage file. In my case es.xml

  3. Look for <currencyFormat>

A line just below you will find the <pattern>

Change the side of the weird symbol and leave it like this:


    <pattern>¤ #,##0.00</pattern>


    <pattern>#,##0.00 ¤</pattern>
  • I finded en.xml and I changed it like You but it doesn't work – wluczykuj Sep 27 '18 at 12:15
  • are you checking on admin side ? – Aditya Shah Sep 27 '18 at 12:16
  • Sorry,I do not understand a bit. I changed to <pattern>#,##0.00 ¤</pattern> and I cleared cache on admin panel. – wluczykuj Sep 27 '18 at 12:20
  • are you checking currency symbol at front side or admin side ? – Aditya Shah Sep 27 '18 at 12:21
  • at front side and admin – wluczykuj Sep 27 '18 at 12:22

How good is this,

Create events.xml file inside your folder.


Add below code in events.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>    
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Event/etc/events.xsd">
    <event name="currency_display_options_forming">
        <observer name="vendor_extension_change_currency_position" instance="Vendor\Extension\Model\Observer\Changecurrencyposition" />

Now you need to create observer file inside the extension folder at path app\code\Vendor\Extension\Model\Observer\Changecurrencyposition.php

namespace Vendor\Extension\Model\Observer;    
use Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface;    
class Changecurrencyposition implements ObserverInterface
    public function execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer)
        $currencyOptions = $observer->getEvent()->getCurrencyOptions();    
        $currencyOptions->setData('position', \Magento\Framework\Currency::RIGHT);  
        return $this;

Run the following command and you are done.

php bin/magento setup:upgrade

You must have to create a custom extension.

Also, this module should have:

  1. app/code/{Vendor}/{Modulename}/etc/module.xml.
  2. app/code/{Vendor}/{Modulename}/composer.json
  3. . app/code/{Vendor}/{Modulename}/registration.php.
