Still working on my /Scribus cover design e-book.

In English-speaking countries a 5 digit price code add-on to the 
ISBN bar code is semi-obligatory.  In the USA the major bookstore 
chain Barnes and Noble requires it. This five digit number begins 
with a single digit currency indicator, e.g. 5 for USD and 6 for the 
British Pound etc. 

What about non-English speaking countries? Do they use the price code 
extension at all? If so, what are the currency indicators for the 
Euro, the Japanese Yen and so on?
