  • Use a CurrencyFormatter:
    // Create a formatter initialized to a specific currency,
    // in this case US Dollar (specified as an ISO 4217 code) 
    // but with the default number formatting for the current user.
    var currencyFormatUSD = new Windows.Globalization.NumberFormatting.CurrencyFormatter("USD"); 
    var currencyUSD = currencyFormatUSD.Format(fractionalNumber);
