In forex, currency pairs are written as XXX/YYY or simply XXXYYY.
Here, XXX is the base currency and YYY is the quote currency.
EUR/USD and USD/CAD are two examples of this format.
The abbreviations used for currencies are prescribed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). These codes are provided in standard ISO 4217.
