It's the list of currencies you see when you click the "Currency" tab on the bottom of the character (equipped items) frame.
That said, in my own currency addon I just hook (non-intrusively with
) "TokenFrame_Update" and "BackpackTokenFrame_Update" to detect currency updates, though I don't remember why I did that instead of listening for some event(s).
