Checking for Valid Currency Value

Unfortunately to do so, it must rely on an exception to detect a invalid value which is a little bit of a performance hit.

public static bool IsCurrency(object value)
{
  bool returnValue = false;
  try
    {
      double check = double.Parse(value.ToString(), NumberStyles.Currency, 
NumberFormatInfo.CurrentInfo);
      returnValue = true;
    }
  catch
    {}
  return returnValue;
}

I would excpect this code to work in normal C# applications too.
