McDonald's Mints MacCoin to Mark Big Mac's 50th Anniversary

How to Get a Free Big Mac at McDonald’s

Each coin entitles the holder to one Big Mac, the company said Sunday.

Big Mac creator Jim Delligatti, right, poses with a Big Mac birthday cake and Ronald McDonald at his 90th birthday party in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, on August 21, 2008.

Many people remember all the ingredients to the McDonald's burger because of its ad campaign saying "two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions on a sesame seed bun".

Customers can redeem the new currency for a free Big Mac starting Friday and running throughout the rest of 2018.

McDonald's Canada is introducing a "fully food-backed currency: the MacCoin", and starting August 2, 50,000 MacCoins, redeemable for one Big Mac, will be made available to Canadians from coast-to-coast.

To celebrate the burger's 50th anniversary, McDonald's has unveiled a new "MacCoin" currency, which will give people even more Big Macs. It has become such a global icon that The Economist even used the price of the Big Mac to create the Big Mac Index, an economic tool that compares the purchasing power of different worldwide currencies year after year.

When completing challenge, keep in mind to finish the game by being eliminated or getting the victory royale before leaving. You'll find it easier in squads where one player can launch the projectile and the other can focus on his or her shot.

In an Interview with USA TODAY, McDonald's CEO Steve Easterbrook explained Thursday was selected as the release date for the brass-colored coins because it would've been the 100th birthday of Jim Delligatti, a McDonald's franchisee in western Pennsylvania who invented the Big Mac.

Suggesting the global appeal of the iconic burger, there are seven languages featured across the various designs: Arabic, English, Indonesian, Mandarin, Portuguese, French and Spanish.

The coins will come in five designs representing one of the five decades of Big Mac. He said it was similar to a Big Boy chain's sandwich, according to the Associated Press. McDonald's added the Big Mac to its national menu in 1968 after Delligatti tested the burger in his Pittsburgh restaurants.

As of August 2, McDonalds fans will be able to secure a MacCoin when they buy a BigMac.

McDonald's sold 1.3 billion Big Macs a year ago, according to the chain.
