Krugerrand Donor Hits Kokomo Kettle For 6th Year

KOKOMO, Ind. (AP) _ The Salvation Army's annual red kettle campaign has received a donation of a valuable coin for the sixth straight year.

The Kokomo Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1wXSrMP ) an anonymous donor dropped a gold Krugerrand and two American Centennial Celebration silver coins into a kettle on the city's east side Monday.

The coins have appeared in kettles during the collection season for several years. Salvation Army officials believe they are donated by a single individual.

The Krugerrand is found in South Africa. One of the coins that was donated in a Kokomo kettle last year was sold for more than $1,200.

A Krugerrand also was donated in Mishawaka last year.
