Hey there, 

 

I'm not aware of any way to do this with javascript, but it is available on the shop object at `/admin/shop.json` under the `money_with_currency_format` field. 

 

You may be able to utilize that, though admittedly it will fall short on any Shopify Plus shops that are using multiple currencies. If that won't be a suitable solution for you, my only other recommendation coming to mind would be to continue to use Shopify.currency but then map the currency names to their associated symbols manually.

i can get money_format from user details so can it will be like '${amount}'

 

Is it a good way to remove {amount} from that string and get the symbol?

For anyone who stumbles on this.

You can just do:

var symbol = theme.moneyFormat.split('{')[0];

This will split the string down into parts and we just grab the first one which is the symbol.
