I hava an aura:component input with placeholder populated by custom currency field. I want to show it as currency but component shows it as number. I need to parse placeholder in future so I can't simple format it as text with currency sign. Advertised_Price__c is currency custom field

<lightning:input type="number" formatter="currency" step="0.01" placeholder="{!appraisal.Advertised_Price__c}"

Without actually testing myself, in order to have the placeholder itself appear as a currency, I'd think you'd need to format it before binding it to the placeholder attribute.

Generally, I also think I'd avoid having the actual value set in the placeholder attribute itself. I could see this leading to confusion on the part of the user.
