Employees at the Hills Bank & Trust on South Gilbert Street found a gold coin when counting Red Kettles earlier this month.

According to a release from the Salvation Army, this was the fifth year someone has donated a gold coin in one of the kettles. The coin was estimated to be worth $175.

“This is becoming a wonderful tradition here in Johnson County. One we hope continues for many years to come,” said Lt. William Richardson of the Johnson County Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army had raised $75,749 of the $350,000 Christmas goal as of Monday.

According to the release, mailed and online donations will be accepted through New Year’s, but the kettle efforts will end Dec. 24.
