PHP/MySQLi recordset search not working with decimal amounts?

I have a decimal field in my database for storing currency values. I have a drop-down select form which searches this field (Ticket Price) depending on the value selected by the user:

This drop down is populated by results from the table, grouped by value, however when you select any of the decimal values - £3.50 or £4.50 - the search isn't working.

In the database table the values are stored as 3.5 and 4.5.

I tried changing the option value from

<option value="<?php echo($rsTICKETS->getColumnVal("dreamcarTICKETPRICE")); ?>">


<option value="<?php echo number_format($rsTICKETS->getColumnVal("dreamcarTICKETPRICE"),2); ?>"> try to force the decimal value, but that hasn't changed it. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you.
