Exodus 30:13

13 Everyone who is registered must pay half a
shekel(s): In the OT the shekel is a measurement of weight that came to be used as money, either gold or silver.
About 2/5 of an ounce of silver
according to the sanctuary shekel (20 gerahs to the shekel). This half shekel is a contribution to the Lord. c
