Rare Gold Coin Found

YORK, Pa. (AP) - The Salvation Army says someone dropped a gold Krugerrand worth more than $1,000 in a collection kettle in south-central Pennsylvania.

York Salvation Army Maj. Lurlene Mudge says the South African gold coin was wrapped in a $1 bill and later discovered while counting the collections.

It was placed Friday in a kettle outside a Kmart store in Springettsbury Township, just outside York.

Mudge says the coin is a morale booster for the people who ring bells by the collection kettles. She says it's been two years since the York Salvation Army got a gold coin as a donation.
