The Big Mac is turning 50, so McDonald's is giving away free burgers to those who get MacCoins. 

McDonald’s to give away free Big Macs for 50th anniversary

To celebrate the Big Mac’s 50th anniversary, McDonald’s is unveiling a new “food currency.”

McDonald’s will launch the MacCoin, a new currency can be used in 50 different countries to earn a free Big Mac, according to USAToday

Starting Thursday, anyone who purchases a Big Mac will receive a MacCoin, which can then be redeemed for a free burger starting Friday. The MacCoins can then be used through the end of the year.


There are five different MacCoins to collect, each representing a different decade of the burger.

The Big Mac, which consists of two beef patties, three buns, a slice of cheese, lettuce, onions and a special sauce, was first added to McDonald’s national menu in 1986, according to Thrillest

Since its debut, there have been a timeline of historical moments for the burger such as having its own jingle and museum.
