In addition to any other laws of this state or of the United States granting priority, any draft or cashier's check issued and drawn against actual existing value by any bank prior to its failure or closing and given in payment of clearings and any money paid in the usual course of business to any bank in payment of a draft for the bona fide transfer of funds shall be a preferred claim against the assets of the bank, irrespective of whether the fund representing such item or items can be traced and identified as part of such assets or has been intermingled with or converted into other assets of such failed bank.
