Does someone know a machine readable currency list, that includes the symbol?

For example

Aruba Guilder,AWG,ƒ,ƒ
Australia Dollar,AUD,$,$

I've found various sources, but they either lack the symbol (e.g $)

Or the lack the machine readability (would require scraping)

(I've added a self-answer with the few resources that I've found.)

There are at least three github repos

  • Currency-List - many formats - "List of all currencies with names and ISO 4217 codes in all languages and all data formats."

  • JSON (gist) - (I'll use this one for now)

  • YAML or gem - "It contains every currency in the ISO 4217 standard"
