How many grams in 1 Tola of silver?
1 Tola is the same in any precious metal. In the UK, it is 11.7g, the closest approximation of 180 troy grains; in India, it is often rounded down to 10g. So there are 11.7 grams in 1 Tola of silver – see our collection of 1 Tola coins below. Did you know? The history of silver hallmarks is long and complex.
How did we decide how many grams should be in a one Tola coin?
PureJewels introduced the silver One Tola coin several years ago. We are the only British jeweler to mint a 0.999 silver One Tola coin, and we offer it in exclusive designs, releasing one per year.
It is a collectible coin that represents an investment in silver. It is a good gif as well as a coin to put aside for the future. Did you know? Sterling silver is 925 parts silver per 1000; our Silver One Tola is 999 parts silver per 1000 – the purest silver available. PureJewels has a world heritage, founded by an Indian migrant who moved to London and started trading during the 1970s. As such, we have adopted the metric system and we have used the metric definition of one Tola. At 11.7 grams, our silver One Tola coins weigh more than a One Tola from most Indian jewelers.
