Two of the gold coins were discovered Wednesday and another one was found November 27, The Salvation Army of Broward County announced. The coin is worth $1,360.59, according to GovMint.com. In the 1970s mints produced millions of them, he said.

Last year, the anonymous donor left two gold coins in the Salvation Army kettle outside the Walmart at 2300 W. Atlantic Blvd.in Pompano Beach.

In both cases, as in earlier years, the coins were wrapped inside a dollar bill. Major Charles Fowler, Washoe County Salvation Army Reno corps coordinator, said in a news release.

"Without sufficient donations to the kettle campaign, I am concerned about our ability to meet the need for social services and continue providing the same level of service across the region", said Stephen Banfield, that division's commander. "Most have no value".

"Reaching our goal this year is going to require a big outpouring of support from the community between now and Christmas", said Deborah Sedlar, the western division commander.

Some of those things are pocket lint, screws, washers, game tokens, foreign coins, Alcoholics Anonymous chips, batteries, angels, pills, gum wrappers, staples, earrings, women's rings, bracelets, a Navy souvenir coin and keys.
