For Big Mac's 50th anniversary, McDonald's is giving away free burgers

Grand Big Mac

To get MacCoin, fans can buy a Big Mac, starting at lunchtime on August 2. Later, he acknowledged the Big Mac's similarity to a popular sandwich sold by the Big Boy chain. No matter where they live in the world, Big Mac fans recognize the two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions on a sesame seed bun as the iconic burger with a flavor combination that's just as craveable and delicious as the day it was introduced.

In 1986, The Economist started using the Big Mac Index as a way of measuring the purchasing power of global currency.

Though McDonald's has suffered losses in recent years - last week the company said customers are visiting its stores less often - the Big Mac hasn't really changed. As for how to actually procure a MacCoin, though, the company is a wee bit more vague in a press release: "a variety of exciting giveaways with each participating country celebrating the arrival of the MacCoin in its own unique way".

The coins will be handed out on a first-come first served basis.

The early '00s MacCoin highlights the decade's emerging technology.

McDonald's has minted the MacCoin to celebrate the Big Mac's 50th anniversary and customers will be able to cash in on five different designs starting on Thursday.

The MacCoin will be redeemable at 14,000 US locations so chances are there'll be one close to you that'll take what the fast food empire is hailing as the "first fully food-back global currency".

The Big Mac has become an American icon over its 50-year run.

"August 2 would have been my great-grandfather's 100th birthday, and I believe he would be very proud knowing his humble sandwich has made such a lasting impression that people all around the world can enjoy it wherever they find a McDonald's". In 2007, the Big Mac Museum Restaurant was established in North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, to honor the juicy burger.
