IMO, currencies should be stored in a separate table, to be referred by the standard abbreviation. That way, we could easily change the display at will.
Different displays are probably appropriate for different parts of the site; e.g., tables of lots of offers should probably use the abbreviation to save space, while the print CSS could put the long name in parentheses after the abbreviation, for clarity, with : after http://www.w3schools.com/css/tryit.asp?filename=trycss_after

About how currencies are exposed,
* that would require the development of new logic.
* Besides, people who do not know, for example, that "LBP" is
"Pounds, Lebanon" will have to move the mouse over it to see
what it is.

About how currencies are filled in the form,
* I agree with you that allowing add "LBP" instead of using
the long combo box is the way to go.
