Tola Bar

A bar of precious metal weighed in tolas - one tola = 3/8 troy ounces. The 10 Tola Gold Bar is one of the most popular with investors in countries like India and Pakistan. Most tola bars are cast with rounded edges since this was the type traditionally favoured by Indian people who wanted to smuggle the bars into the country concealed in body cavities. In Pakistan, tola bars are sometimes incorporated into bridal jewellery.
