Changing System Currency settings using CLI


I am having a problem with servers that have been set up using the dollar $ symbol as the system currency setting and I need to change this to the South African rand R symbol. I only have remote access to the systems via ssh (putty) and I have this issue on both a RHEL5 and OpenSuSE 11.? machine so I am looking for a generic solution. Is there a configuration file, command or command line tool I can use/ change to change this setting.

Thanks
Christian
