GeoNames is using the ISO 4217 three letter currency code.

The GeoNames documentation says :
source : http://download.geonames.org/export/dump/countryInfo.txt

# Currencies :
# ============
#
# A number of territories are not included in ISO 4217, because their currencies are not per se an independent currency,
# but a variant of another currency. These currencies are:
#
# 1. FO : Faroese krona (1:1 pegged to the Danish krone)
# 2. GG : Guernsey pound (1:1 pegged to the pound sterling)
# 3. JE : Jersey pound (1:1 pegged to the pound sterling)
# 4. IM : Isle of Man pound (1:1 pegged to the pound sterling)
# 5. TV : Tuvaluan dollar (1:1 pegged to the Australian dollar).
# 6. CK : Cook Islands dollar (1:1 pegged to the New Zealand dollar).
#
# The following non-ISO codes are, however, sometimes used: "GGP" for the Guernsey pound",
# "JEP" for the Jersey pound and "IMP" for the Isle of Man pound (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_4217)
#
#
# A list of currency symbols is available here : http://forum.geonames.org/gforum/posts/list/437.page
