This is news made in heaven for all Big Mac lovers in the US.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of its iconic Big Mac, McDonald’s customers are set to receive a MacCoin with the purchase of a Big Mac across the 14,000 participating restaurants from today.
Customers can redeem the new brass-colored coins, which is not a cryptocurrency, for a free Big Mac.
We're celebrating 50 years of Big Mac by creating a global currency—MacCoin—each one worth a free Big Mac around the 🌎, with 5 collectible designs for 5 legendary decades. Starting August 2, collect your own MacCoins when you buy a Big Mac while supplies last. #BigMac50 pic.twitter.com/xn8Z9GNLSp
