Once again, an anonymous donor has dropped a rare South African coin into a Salvation Army red kettle during the holiday season. The 1981 gold Krugerrand was found in a red kettle in Kokomo Tuesday. Captain Dale Brandenberg with the Salvation Army in Kokomo says the coin is worth over $1,600. He says they also found seven silver one-ounce coins worth $29 a piece in the same kettle. This is the third year in a row a Krugerrand has been found inside a red kettle in Kokomo. Krugerrands have also turned up in Johnson County, Evansville and Chicago in past years.
