There are also some cast metal weights that are rectangular and cube-shaped, and some that are oval or in the shape of animals.

Most of the weights found in Palestine are from the end of the period of the monarchy (the seventh to sixth centuries BCE).

The relation between the talent and the shekel is defined in Exodus –26.

The half shekel brought by 603,550 men amounted to 100 talents and 1,775 shekels. This system of dividing the talent into 3,000 shekels differed from the Mesopotamian system which divides the talent into 3,600 parts, and was the same as the Ugaritic system where the talent was also divided into 3,000 shekels.

Seven weights related to metal (thus creating "coins") are mentioned in the Bible: talent, mina, shekel, beka, gerah, pim, and kesitah.
