What does Exodus 25:39 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Exodus 25:39

Of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these
vessels.
] The common talent weighed sixty pounds, but the sacred talent was double, and weighed one hundred and twenty pounds, as says Jarchi, and so Ben Melech: a talent of gold amounted to 5067 pounds, three shillings and ten pence of our money, according to Bishop Cumberland F4.

(Assuming a troy weight of 12 ounces to a pound, and an ounce of gold worth $400 U.S., than a talent would be worth about $600,000. Editor.)
