Yes, when I hear "a tin of saffron", I think of the tin in my kitchen cabinet, which holds an ounce, and is a tin box maybe 2 x 3 x 5 inches. I think, though, that saffron is also sometimes sold in small, snap-top tins such as some ointments and cosmetics, or shoe polish, used to come in, sort of hockey-puck shaped, but much smaller, and holding maybe a gram or two. Maybe that's what is being referred to here?
