Regex – “The Best” U.S. Currency RegEx

currencyregex

A quick search for currency regex brings up a lot of results.

The problem I have in choosing one is that regex is difficult to verify without testing all the edge cases. Does anyone have a regex for U.S. currency that has been thoroughly tested?

My only requirement is that the matched string is U.S. currency and parses to System.Decimal:

[ws][sign][digits,]digits[.fractional-digits][ws] 

Elements in square brackets ([ and ]) are optional. 
The following table describes each element. 

ELEMENT             DESCRIPTION
ws                  Optional white space.
sign                An optional sign.
digits              A sequence of digits ranging from 0 to 9.
,                   A culture-specific thousands separator symbol.
.                   A culture-specific decimal point symbol.
fractional-digits   A sequence of digits ranging from 0 to 9. 

Best Solution

here's some stuff from the makers of Regex Buddy. These came from the library so i'm confident they have been thoroughly tested.
