Troy weight is a system of units of mass customarily used for precious metals, gemstones, and black powder.

There are 12 troy ounces per troy pound, rather than the 16 ounces per pound found in the more common avoirdupois system.
The troy ounce is 480 grains, compared with the avoirdupois ounce, which is 437-1/2 grains.
Both systems use the same grain of exactly 0.06479891 gram.
Although troy ounces are still used to weigh gold, silver, and gemstones, the troy pound is no longer used.
