Weighing precious metals: tons?

How about it? We know about troy ounces and troy pounds; but is there a “troy ton”? I saw a Three Stooges short in which Moe tells Curly they have stumbled on 100,000 tons of gold, at $35 an ounce. The short was made about 1938, and not geared for the kind of people who likely would have a lot of gold; so I assume Moe meant avoirdupois tons. Did he? Or metric tons? Or a “troy ton”?
