Is it possible to get the price without currency symbol, or a way to put a div around the currency symbol to hide it with css?

$block->formatCurrency($block->getDisplayValue(), (bool)$block->getIncludeContainer())

If I remove the $block->formatCurrency I get the price without currency symbol, but a 1 will be added at the end of the price.

So I would like to put a div around the currency symbol and hide it with CSS.

Someone who can help me with that?

EDIT: I also want to add ,- behind the price.

May be this will help you

$objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$currency = $objectManager->get('Magento\Directory\Model\Currency');
$price = 100;
echo $currency->format($price, ['display'=>\Zend_Currency::NO_SYMBOL], false);

I've just faced a similar task and found this solutions:

  1. For home page and category pages.

You need to override app\design\frontend\Vendor\theme\Magento_Catalog\templates\product\price\amount\default.phtml.

In my case it was 20 line. The line looked like this:

><?= $block->escapeHtml($block->formatCurrency($block->getDisplayValue(), (bool)$block->getIncludeContainer()), ['span']) ?></span>

And now it was changed to this:

><span class="price"><?= $block->escapeHtml($block->getDisplayValue()) ?></span></span>
  1. For product page.

You need to create require-config.js in app\design\frontend\Vendor\theme with content:

var config = {
map: {
    '*': {

Then create your custom price box in app\design\frontend\Vendor\theme\Magento_Catalog\web\js\custom-price-box.js. The content is:

function ($, utils, _, mageTemplate) {

    'use strict';

    $.widget('customName.priceBox', $.mage.priceBox, {
        /*eslint-disable no-extra-parens*/
         * Render price unit block.
        reloadPrice: function reDrawPrices() {
            var priceFormat = (this.options.priceConfig && this.options.priceConfig.priceFormat) || {},
                priceTemplate = mageTemplate(this.options.priceTemplate);

            _.each(this.cache.displayPrices, function (price, priceCode) {
                price.final = _.reduce(price.adjustments, function (memo, amount) {
                    return memo + amount;
                }, price.amount);

                price.formatted = price.final + ',-'; //you need to change this line, as example

                $('[data-price-type="' + priceCode + '"]', this.element).html(priceTemplate({
                    data: price
            }, this);

    return $.stagem.priceBox;

And my price now showing without currency symbol. Hope this helps.


Yes it is possible to get price without currency symbol by using below approach

Instantiate \Magento\Directory\Model\Currency $priceCurrencyFormat class in constructor and use below code

$this->priceCurrencyFormat->format($product->getPrice(), ['precision'=>0, 'display'=>\Zend_Currency::NO_SYMBOL], 0);

In second param of format() func you can also customize the price precision based on your requirement.

You could also use below code to get your result, but it is not a good approach

$objectManager    = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$priceCurrencyFormat = $objectManager->get('Magento\Directory\Model\Currency');
$priceFormat = $priceCurrencyFormat->format($product->getPrice(), ['precision'=>0, 'display'=>\Zend_Currency::NO_SYMBOL], 0);
echo $priceFormat."-";
  • Hi, I can't find the file to edit. Are you sure is the correct path for Magento 2?

  • Directly editing the core file is not recommended, you should override the file in which you need your changes. In that overdid file (say you overdid any block file ) you can create the function with the above code and call it in your file.

  • I have updated my answer, placing those 4 lines of code in your desired files will give you your desired result.
