shekalim 4

because coins come in different measures and sizes, certain people need to add a little extra to make it equivalent to the fiery coin found under God's throne.

(discussion about the premium added to the half-shekel, to compensate for the variants in the size of coins. as for the half-shekel, description of God showing Moshe a coin of fire from beneath God's Throne. Even God finds loose change at the back of the sofa....)
