Do Good Stuff Movement: Valuable Gold Coins Appearing in Donation Kettles

Valuable Gold Coin Appears In PA. Donation Kettle

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Someone has dropped a rare coin worth about $1,700 into a Salvation Army kettle in central Pennsylvania. Again.

The Evening Sun newspaper of Hanover reports a gold South African Krugerrand was discovered Wednesday in a kettle outside a Walmart near Gettysburg.

The valuable currency has appeared in Gettysburg-area kettles for several years. But no one knows who should be thanked for the generosity.

Local Salvation Army unit organizer C.K. Roulette says he’s content with the mystery remaining unsolved. He says it sparks people’s imaginations and adds excitement during long, cold hours of bell-ringing.

Krugerrands also have turned up in recent years in Salvation Army kettles in Florida, Indiana, Colorado and Washington.
