One half shekel was required as annual tax for a male adult due to Temple, so a full shekel was the tax for two men. This would be the same coin as found in the fish's mouth in Mark 17:27 that was enough to pay for the Temple tax for both Jesus and Peter. Judas was paid 30 shekels or half shekels to betray Jesus Christ.
