When traders quote a UK value for how much gold is worth at current prices, they usually say simply “gold price per ounce”, omitting the word “Troy”. That's even though a Troy ounce of gold is almost 10% heavier than a standard ounce.
The Troy weights system originated in the French city of Troyes. It was the basis for Britain's coinage in the Middle Ages. Based on the value of gold and silver, it was introduced by Henry II – who also ruled the western part of France – in the 12th Century.
A pure Troy ounce contains 31.1035 grams of 24-carat fine gold, almost 3 grams more than the cook's 'avoirdupois' measurement. One kilogram of fine gold contains approximately 32.15 Troy ounces.
