To the left of her image is ‘Elizabeth II’. Above her head is ‘10 DOLLARS’. To the right of her is ‘COOK ISLANDS’. Below her is ‘2022’.

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.
