Kansas Salvation Army Strikes Gold from Donations

The Salvation Army in Topeka, Kansas got an early Christmas gift this year.

It struck gold when workers found a gold coin while sorting and counting donations from their Christmas donation kettles.

The 1998 coin is worth more than $600.

A spokesman for the Topeka Salvation Army said the coin counter was taken by surprise when he found the one-ounce American eagle gold coin.

Now, the Topeka group is waiting to hear from division headquarters about what to do with the coin.
