I just got the "2019 Pride of Two Nations" two-coin set from the US Mint. In the COA, it indicates that both coins weigh 1.000 troy ounces but also indicates that the ASE is 31.103 grams and the Canadian $5 maple leaf is 31.39 grams - why is there a discrepancy in the weight by grams, but not in weight by ounces? Thoughts?

The ASE is 40.6mm diameter,2.98mm thickness. while the Maple leaf is 38mm 3.29 thickness. 1.1 mm overall difference dimensionally.
But yeah. Both have 1 troy oz. Of silver. The ASE has .09 more copper than the maple leaf, the maple leaf is more pure at 99.99 whIle the ASE is 99.90 silver both have the remaining balance of copper, ASE .10% and CML .01% copper.

But 1 troy oz. Of silver is 1 troy oz. Of silver. Same way a 40% half dollar is 40% pure silver while a 90% half dollar is 90% pure silver.
