troy

A weighing system specifically for precious metals.  For those who don't understand why you need a special system for precious metals, when weight is weight, try this explanation from Wikipedia:

Troy weight is a system of units of mass that originated in 15th-century England. The troy weight units are the grain, the pennyweight (24 grains), the troy ounce (20 pennyweights), and the troy pound (12 troy ounces). The troy grain is equal to the grain unit of the avoirdupois system, but the troy ounce is heavier than the avoirdupois ounce, and the troy pound is lighter than the avoirdupois pound. One troy ounce equals exactly 31.1034768 grams.


An interesting use of the word "exactly".  But everything's now crystal clear, isn't it?

(Weights and measures are a law unto themselves, particularly old and archaic ones.  But presumably they made sense at the time .)
