$1,600 Gold Coin Kettle$1,600 Gold Coin Kettle, A Salvation Army branch in Wisconsin may not have received frankincense or myrrh, but its bell ringers found a gift of gold.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports ( that an anonymous donor dropped a gold coin in a red kettle this week. The one-ounce American Eagle coin is worth $1,600.

Capt. Ken Shiels of The Salvation Army of Brown County said he had to check it over at first to know it was real. He says it was a thrill to find out it was, and even more so to discover how much it’s worth.

He says he’d like to think the gift reflects the donor’s confidence in the work the Salvation Army does. The organization is about two-thirds of the way to its winter fundraising goal of $1.15 million.
