I would like to keep monetary (money/prices) in collections. Which type will be okay, number? But do I not lose precision on arithmetic problems?

Can I create own implementation for field compliant with: ?

    @dawidmachon It is generally best practice to store monetary values in the smallest denomination, there are plenty of good articles out there explaining why this is the case.

    So personally I would opt to use the number field almost always (storing as cents), and then add a description that displays the amount in a dollar amount.
