Surprise in the Kettle!

-
(KFOR)  One of Salvation Army's red kettles in Oklahoma City received its first ever large donation in the form of a gold Canadian coin.

It has become a tradition.

Every year, mystery donors slip the unique coins in kettle bells throughout the country. 

Captain Carlyle Gargis with the Salvation Army said this is the first gold coin Oklahoma has ever received.

"It was wrapped up in this $2 bill, just like this when we pulled it out of the kettle, under this fine little piece of paper, a one ounce gold maple leaf," Gargis said.

The coin is worth $1,275, a lot of money in the form of a single coin.
