SE-2298 Allows setting default currency from environment
(cherry picked from commit 5190470ee8a2a12611b36165f0934dad13f6b869)
This allows overriding the default currency in ecommerce. Useful for instances where the desired currency isn't USD. Originally tested and used at https://github.com/open-craft/ecommerce/pull/13
Relates to https://github.com/edx/configuration/pull/5757, which introduces the ansible variables to configure this.

[x] edX reviewers TBD
Is now a better time to re-visit this OSPR? Please consider reviewing it.
Honestly, we are pretty swamped this sprint, as we are trying to get Value Prop and Branding out the door before people start taking off. Tagging to confirm that he doesn't want us to pull this into the sprint.
Could someone on your team steward this change through? It's a small config change that can help Open edX deployments.
Ben Holt is currently busy, will need another reviewer for this.
