Doctrine2 DBAL type to store Money objects in a single field.
namespace Money\Doctrine2;
use Money\Money;
use Money\Currency;
use Doctrine\DBAL\Types\ConversionException;
use Doctrine\DBAL\Types\Type;
use Doctrine\DBAL\Platforms\AbstractPlatform;
* Stores Money in a single field, in the smallest unit (cents). eg "EUR 100"
* Note that this is only usefull if you don't intend to query on this.
* @example
class MoneyType extends Type
const NAME = 'money';
public function getSqlDeclaration(array $fieldDeclaration, AbstractPlatform $platform)
return $platform->getVarcharTypeDeclarationSQL($fieldDeclaration);
public function convertToPHPValue($value, AbstractPlatform $platform)
if (is_null($value)) {
return null;
list($currency, $amount) = explode(' ', $value, 2);
return new Money((int) $amount, new Currency($currency));
public function convertToDatabaseValue($value, AbstractPlatform $platform)
if (empty($value)) {
return null;
if ($value instanceof Money) {
return (string) $value->getCurrency() . ' '. $value->getAmount();
throw ConversionException::conversionFailed($value, self::NAME);
public function getName()
return self::NAME;

you don't want to store the currency with the amount you won't be able to sum or use conditions with db queries
