MEBANE, N.C. -- For the 7th time this season, the Salvation Army of Alamance County has received another gold coin.

Captain Jimmy Taylor told WFMY News 2 the 7th gold coin was found this week at the Lowe's Food in Mebane.

Taylor says all six coins anonymous donated this holiday season have totaled together to $2,680.00. This is not including the latest coin, which he estimates to be worth close to $1.280.00.

Last Thursday, three gold coins were donated at the same location.

Taylor said the three coins are valued at almost $2,000, which is about how much the Salvation Army typically receives in donations in a day. He does not know who donated the coins.

In December 2012, someone anonymously donated three rare coins at another red kettle in Alamance County which were worth $1,700.

The red kettle program runs through Dec. 24 and raises money to support youth programs, housing assistance, and community-building programs in Alamance County.
