SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Salvation Army believes there may be a competition of gold dropping into the organization's Red Kettles.

Wednesday morning, officials with the Salvation Army found a 1945 gold 2.5 peso coin in a kettle, the second gold coin to be donated in a week and a half. The coin is valued at $61.

This gold coin was dropped in a kettle on December 7. The face value is $50, though its value in gold is more than $1,000

The first, a one-ounce Liberty gold coin, was dropped in a kettle at the Wandermere Fred Meyer on December 7. That coin has a face value of $50, but it's value in gold is estimated to be approximately $1,100.

The following Monday, December 14, a $1,000 check was dropped in yet another Red Kettle.

"This is the sort of competition we really like, we are wondering who will be next," said Spokane Corps Officer Captain Kyle Smith.
