convert Currency back to double

If i've used the following code to convert a double into formatted currency is there any way to convert back?

for instance:

NumberFormat FormatCurrency = NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance();
String sBalance = FormatCurrency.format(5100.25);

now that sBalance = $5,100.25 how could I convert this back to 5100.25 as a double?

Thanks

Use the parse method [1].

Number number = FormatCurrency.parse(sBalance);
double asDouble = number.doubleValue();
