A rare gold coin was found in a Salvation Army Red Kettle.

A 10 Franc Gold Rooster 1911 gold coin was found in a Salvation Army Red Kettle over the weekend at Mangelsen’s in southwest Omaha. The .0933 oz gold coin is worth an estimated $135.00 at this time.

“The generosity of the citizens of Omaha never cease to amaze me," Major Todd Thielke, Senior Kroc Officer with The Salvation Army Kroc Center said. "I would like to think that all of our donors have hearts of gold, but this donation proves it,”

The Tree of Lights $3 million campaign began November 8th. As of November 27, more than $934,000 has been donated to the campaign. The Red Kettle drive runs through December 24th.
