(KOKOMO) - For the third straight year, someone has dropped a gold Krugerrand into a Salvation Army kettle in Kokomo.

Salvation Army Capt. Dale Brandenburg told the Kokomo Tribune on Monday that anonymous donors also have left seven 1-ounce silver coins in red kettles in the Kokomo area.

The gold coin is valued at about $1,600 and the silver coins at $29 each.
Meanwhile, an anonymous donor also dropped a gold coin into a Michigan City Salvation Army red kettle earlier this month.

Michigan City Salvation Army director Maj. Brian Burkett tells The News-Dispatch the 1986 Liberty 1-ounce gold coin appraised for $1,600 but a local donor offered $1,750 for it.
Burkett says Salvation Army kettles in Michigan City received Krugerrands for several years until a few years ago.
