SHELBY, N.C. (AP) - Someone in the holiday spirit left a South African gold coin called a Krugerrand in a Salvation Army kettle outside a store in Shelby.

The Shelby Star reports (https://bit.ly/1YG9fkm ) that Mary Ashby, the co-director of the Salvation Army in Cleveland and Rutherford counties, says that each year the group receives rare coins from an unknown donor.

The Krugerrand was found on Dec. 12.

In addition to the South African coin, the organization this year also received a $20 gold piece, a 1941 silver dollar, and a bullion of silver.

The coins will be appraised to determine their value.
