KOKOMO, Ind. (AP) - The Salvation Army’s annual red kettle campaign in a central Indiana city has received a donation of a valuable coin for the sixth straight year.

The Kokomo Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1wXSrMP ) an anonymous donor dropped a gold Krugerrand and two American Centennial Celebration silver coins into a kettle on Kokomo’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 person.

Krugerrands are made in South Africa. One of the coins donated in a Kokomo kettle last year was sold for more than $1,200.

A Krugerrand also was donated last year in northern Indiana’s Mishawaka.
