FLUSHING, Mich. (AP) - Gold coins are making a very valuable sound in the Michigan kettles of The Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army of Genesee County says a coin worth $1,100 was deposited in a kettle at a grocery store in Flushing. And for the third year in a row, a Kruggerrand worth $1,200 was dropped into a holiday collection kettle at a Kroger store in St. Clair Shores.

The coin could help pay for more than 80 toys or 48 winter coats.

The Flint Journal says (http://bit.ly/1RorKdY ) the Flushing coin is from 1979. The Salvation Army of Genesee County says it has been years since a gold coin was donated.
