You'll start to notice people standing in front of businesses ringing bells for Salvation Army's annual Red Kettle fundraising campaign.
Reports said someone tossed a South African coin into one of the red kettles in Kankakee County last week.
The coin is worth around $1,000!
To make it even sweeter, the coin was donated on the first official day of fundraising.
Salvation Army officials said it's the 29th year in a row someone's donated a gold coin in one of the red kettles.
