... currency abbreviations (and their full-length names)
Geography::Countries does this, but it's outdated (not updated in 5 years), and attempts to contact the developer has been unsuccessful so far.

However, there are developer releases of the same module, such as this, which could be useful. The diff between the two looks like this:

337c332 < AQ Antarctica --- > AQ ATA 010 Antarctica 360c355 < BV Bouvet Island --- > BV BVT 074 Bouvet Island 362c357 < IO British Indian Ocean Territory --- > IO IOT 086 British Indian Ocean Territory 378,379c373,375 < CX Christmas Island < CC Cocos (keeling) Islands --- > CX CXR 162 Christmas Island > AX ALA 248 Cland Islands > CC CCK 166 Cocos (Keeling) Islands 385c381 < CI CIV 384 Côte d'Ivoire --- > CI CIV 384 Côte d'Ivoire 396c392 < TP TMP 626 East Timor --- > TL TLS 626 Timor-Leste 403a400 > EU European Union 413c410 < TF French Southern Territories --- > TF ATF 260 French Southern Territories 430c427 < HM Heard Island And Mcdonald Islands --- > HM HMD 334 Heard Island and McDonald Islands 472c469 < YT Mayotte --- > YT MYT 175 Mayotte 475a473 > ME MNE 499 Montenegro 494c492 < PSE 275 Occupied Palestinian Territory --- > PS PSE 275 Occupied Palestinian Territory 511c509 < RE REU 638 Réunion --- > RE REU 638 Réunion 523a522 > RS SRB 688 Serbia 532c531 < GS South Georgia And The South Sandwich Islands --- > GS SGS 239 South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands 560c559 < UM United States Minor Outlying Islands --- > UM UMI 581 United States Minor Outlying Islands 588a588 > 891 Serbia and Montenegro
Update: I have confused country codes with currency codes. Sorry.

    AFAICS, Geography::Countries deals only with country codes, not currency abbreviations (they're different ISO standards), so I don't see how does it help.
