Just what is a Troy ounce, anyway?  For those trading precious metals futures like gold, silver, platinum and palladium, it’s the unit of weight by which those physical products are measured.


Turns out, a small town about 110 miles southeast of Paris and situated within the Champagne wine region was major intersection for parts of the Roman-era trade highways and then an important international trading hub during the Middle Ages (± 500 AD to 1500).  The town’s name: Troyes (pronounced: troy).  Right around the 12th and 13th centuries – call it the middle of the Middle Ages – an annual cycle of 2- to 3-week trade fairs flourished in the region and it was likely then that the unit of weight was standardized and first used.  It essentially beat out other systems of weight developed in other parts of Europe and eventually it was made the official weight for gold and silver by England in 1824, called the British Imperial system.  Four years later, the United States adopted it as an official weight standard for United States coinage.  And today, your precious metals are still measured using this system.
