    Clarke's Commentary on Leviticus 27:4

    And if it be a female - The woman, at the same age, vowed unto the Lord, might be redeemed for thirty shekels, 4. 10s. sterling, a little more than one half of the value of the man; for this obvious reason, that a woman, if employed, could not be of so much use in the service of the sanctuary as the man, and was therefore of much less value.

    Barnes' Notes on Leviticus 27:4

    The relative values of the persons appear to be regulated according to an estimate of the probable value of their future work:

    Ages Male Female From a month to five years of age 5 shekels 3 shekels From five years to twenty of age 20 shekels 10 shekels From forty years to sixty of age 50 shekels 30 shekels Sixty years of age and older: 15 shekels 10 shekels

    As regards the shekel of the sanctuary, see Exodus 38:24 note.
