Your front end application would have to format it.

Both front-end and cast-to-money/convert-with-style-1 will work. If you have a small amount of data to deal with, performance difference will be insignificant. If you have millions of records to work with, a well-written front-end formatting is likely to give the best performance, since it can do it in a single function, rather than 2 functions.
