New York: An aquarium in North Carolina said it recovered coins that occupied 100 gallons of space after they drained and cleaned an artificial waterfall that was also a wishing well for visitors.

The North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores recently turned off and cleaned their 30-foot-tall “Smoky Mountain” waterfall, which served as a wishing well for visitors for over 14 years.

The public aquarium in a Facebook post on August 9 revealed that coins, after cleaning and sorting, will be cashed in and used towards the maintenance of the aquarium.

In the post, the aquarium also encouraged the people to guess the amount of money recovered from the waterfall.

The aquarium is expected to reveal the amount collected from the waterfall by next week.
