The Tola

The original. Redefined.
The Tola is a Vedic measure, with the name derived from the Sanskrit ‘tol’ meaning ‘weighing’ or ‘weight’. Since ancient times, the Tola was the standard measure of gold and silver bullion. The legendary Tola has symbolized strength and integrity on gold for centuries. With such a depth of history behind it, the Tola has always been a popular choice with the gold bullion market till it was replaced by the introduction of the metric system. Now, that tradition is given a new life through the launch of the Tola, a coin whose weight is defined precisely to four decimal numbers, with a purity specification that is the finest in the world and a distinctive shape that relates it to the centuries behind its history. The Tola is struck at India’s first and only internationally accredited (London Bullion Market Association Good Delivery) facility to exacting standards in 999.9 fine gold, and measuring an impressive 25.48 mm octagon in width. In keeping with the decimal system, the Tola weighs exactly 11.6638 grams, and its special packaging is designed to enable transportation, storage and identification without risk of damage, thus providing exceptional convenience and security for all gold coin buyers. All packaging features the MMTC-PAMP logos as a guarantee of the quality and authenticity of the coins contained therein. The design of the Tola features the classic design of the traditional weighing balance, instantly recognizable across the world as the weighing standard for trade in gold. The reverse features the inextricable bond of gold as a storehouse of wealth, stored traditionally in a cloth bag containing the precise number of ratti seeds for the weight of 11.6638 gms.
