Salvation Army officials in Florida said they found gold coins among the donations in a Red Kettle in Florida.

And this is the fourth consecutive year that someone has dropped gold 1947 Mexican 50-peso coins into a kettle outside a store in Pompano Beach.

The Salvation Army of Broward County said two of the coins were discovered Wednesday (Dec. 13) and another on Nov. 27. All of the coins were wrapped in dollar bills, and each is worth more than $1,300.

Alyse Gossman, the Salvation Army of Broward County’s director of development, said a donor typically purchases the coins after the Christmas season.

The organization says holiday donations in the red kettles help provide meals, shelter, clothing and social services to more than 25,000 people in the Broward County.
