From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]:

Troy  \Troy\,  n.
Troy  weight.

{Troy  weight},  the  weight  which  gold  and  silver,  jewels,  and
the  like  are  weighed.  It  was  so  named  from  Troyes,  in
France,  where  it  was  first  adopted  in  Europe.  The  troy
ounce  is  supposed  to  have  been  brought  from  Cairo  during
the  crusades.  In  this  weight  the  pound  is  divided  into  12
ounces,  the  ounce  into  20  pennyweights,  and  the
pennyweight  into  24  grains;  hence  the  troy  ounce  contains
480  grains,  and  the  troy  pound  contains  5760  grains.  The
avoirdupois  pound  contains  7000  troy  grains;  so  that  175
pounds  troy  equal  144  pounds  avoirdupois,  or  1  pound  troy
=  0.82286  of  a  pound  avoirdupois,  and  1  ounce  troy  =
117/175  or  1.09714  ounce  avoirdupois.  Troy  weight  when
divided,  the  pound  into  12  ounces,  the  ounce  into  8  drams,
the  dram  into  3  scruples,  and  the  scruple  into  20  grains,
is  called  apothecaries'  weight,  used  in  weighing
medicines,  etc  In  the  standard  weights  of  the  United
States,  the  troy  ounce  is  divided  decimally  down  to  the
1/10000  part
