A rare Chinese coin worth $120 has been dropped on one of the Salvation Army's red kettles in Omaha.
Salvation Army Lt. John Fetzer IV says the 2006 Chinese Yuan coin was donated in southwest Omaha last weekend.
The gold coin donation added some excitement to the kettle campaign. Fetzer says that generous donations like this help the group continue to serve others.
There is somewhat of a tradition of gold coin kettle donations in some parts of the country. In Chicago, for example, more than 300 gold coins have been donated over the past 25 years.
The Salvation Army hopes to raise $3.1 million through its annual holiday donation campaign in Omaha.
