Generous donor leaves gold coin in Salvation Army kettle

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It was a golden discovery for the Salvation Army in north central Indiana after an anonymous donor dropped a gold Krugerrand into a red kettle in Kokomo.

Officials found the coin in one of their kettles last week; it was later sold for more than $1,200.

The money will be put to good use since the organization is about $50,000 short of its fundraising goal in Kokomo.

This marks the fifth straight year a Krugerrand donation has been made in that city.
