For the second bell-ringing season in a row, an anonymous donor has dropped a gold coin, worth about $1,600, into a Grand Forks Salvation Army kettle.
It happened sometime in December at the Home of Economy in the city's north end, according to the Army's Maj. Jonathan Fjellman.
The South African Krugerrand, dated 1982, weighed about an ounce and is similar in size to a quarter but thicker, he said. It was sold to a local individual, he said.
