Rare Chinese Coin Found In Red Kettle

A 10 Franc Gold Rooster 1911 gold coin was found in a Salvation Army Red Kettle over the weekend at Mangelsen’s on south 84th Street. 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. I would like to think that all of our donors have hearts of gold, but this donation proves it," said Major Todd Thielke, Senior Kroc Officer with The Salvation Army Kroc Center.


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