The trucking industry is the lifeblood of commerce in the United States. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to them for keeping things going the last couple of years. This 2022 ½ Gram Truck King of the Road coin is a celebration of our truckers in a beautiful .9999 fine gold coin that is shaped like the cab of an eighteen wheeler.
- Made of ½ gram .999 fine gold
- Face value of $1 backed by Palau government
- Obverse side has the coat of arms of Palau
- The reverse side is the front of a truck cab and the coin is shaped like the cab
The obverse side of the coin is stamped into the back of the truck shaped coin. Here we see the coat of arms of the Island of Palau. Across the top is “Republic of Palau”. At the bottom is ‘$1”
The reverse side of the coin is shaped like the cab of an eighteen wheeler truck. There isn’t any brand on it but it isn’t hard to imagine it as a Peterbilt or Wentworth truck. The lines of the image are flat and shiny gold which gives it a little bit of a three dimensional feel.
The trucking industry has been the central figure in TV shows and movies like “Dual”, “Smokey and the Bandit’. Country songs have been written about driving trucks. The artist, C.W. McCall wrote several songs about driving trucks including his smash hit “Convoy” which was even made into a movie. Over the last couple of years, we as a nation learned just how important the trucking industry is to the commerce of this country. It’s good to stop and recognize that every once and a while.
