John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Leviticus 27:27

An unclean beast — That is, if it be the first — born of an unclean beast, as appears from Leviticus 27:26, which could not be vowed, because it was a first — born, nor offered, because it was unclean, and therefore is here commanded to be redeemed or sold. It shall be sold — And the price thereof was given to the priests, or brought into the Lord's treasury.

and shall add:
This was probably intended to prevent rash vows and covetous redemptions. The priest alone was to value the thing; and to whatever his valuation was, a fifth part must be added by him who wished to redeem it.
Leviticus 27:11-13 And if [it be] any unclean beast, of which they do not offer a sacrifice unto the LORD, then he shall present the beast before the priest: ... But if he will at all redeem it, then he shall add a fifth [part] thereof unto thy estimation.
