    1 gram = 15.4323584 grains

    About 8 grams?

    # Grain:
    An ancient unit which was originally based on the weight of a grain of wheat. The grain is the smallest unit of weight in the avoirdupois, troy, and apothecaries systems. Surprisingly it is identical in all three systems.
    1 grain = 64.8 milligrams
    1 grain = 0.0648 grams
    4 grains = 1 carat
    15.432 grains = 1 gram
    20 grains = 1 scruple
    24 grains =1 pennyweight
    480 grains = 1 troy ounce
    5760 grains = 1 troy pound
    437.5 grains = 1 ounce avoirdupois
    7000 grains = 1 pound avoirdupois
    Grain = 1/7000 avoirdupois pound
    Grain = 1/5760 apothecary or troy pound
    Grain = 0.0022857 avoirdupois ounce
    Grain = 0.0020833 apothecary or troy ounce
    Grain = 0.03657143 avoirdupois dram
    Grain = 0.016667 apothecary or troy dram
    Grain = 0.0416667 troy pennyweight
    Grain = 0.05000 apothecary scruple
    Grain =0.064798918 gram
    Grain =0.3240 metric carat
    Grain =64.798918 milligram

    I would add, 42 grains of .500 fine means to me that you have 21 grains of gold or 1.36 grams agw (actual gold weight).

    1.36 grams / 31.1 grams per troy ounce = 0.044 troy ounces of gold. About the amount of gold found in a U.S. gold dollar.

    Those must be some tiny medals!
  • Thanks for the replies

    Yes red they are small, actually they look to be close to the size of the $5 ASE.

    So I have 21 grains agw in each medal.

    I bought these at a local auction back in 03 for $6.66 each....................works for meimage


    Again thanks for the relies.

    Your "loot," based on $1214 spot, is worth about $53 per bar

    Here is a great conversion calculator... Gold value calculator

    A little OT, but that is by far the BEST PM calculator out there IMO. I have it in my "Favorites" toolbar for quick reference & use it often. I like it better than Coinflation because it does everything including most major foriegn coins.
