CHICAGO - MAY 11: American Eagle and South African Krugerrand gold bullion is offered for sale at the Chicago Coin Company May 11, 2006 in Chicago, Illinois. Inflationary worries today drove gold above $725 an ounce, a new 25-year high. The record for gold was set in January 1980 when it hit $875 an ounce during a two-day buying surge.

ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. (WXYZ) - The Salvation Army's secret Santa strikes again for the sixth year in a row.
A spokesperson from the Salvation Army of Metro Detroit said the secret Santa dropped a 1980 South African gold Krugerrand into a red kettle at the Marter Street Kroger in St. Clair Shores.
The gold coin is worth about $1,300, according to the Salvation Army.
The donation will help:
Apparently, the mysterious donor has placed a Krugerrand into the kettle at around the same time frame and location since 2013.
All six coins have an estimated value of nearly $7,400.
