That is not exactly true.
Bank applications for its calculations need four digits after the 
decimal point. Also consider that currency exchange rates use four 
digits after the decimal point :)

The MONEY data type is a 64-bit signed integer with the last four digits 
being after the decimal point, so the values covered are
from -2^63 / 10^4  to  (2^63 - 1) / 10^4

I think only those:
should not work, the rest should work.
