McDonald's to offer "Mac Coins"

How to Get a Free Big Mac at McDonald’s

That day would have been the 100th birthday of Jim Delligatti, the man who invented the Big Mac almost 50 years ago, McDonalds CEO, Steve Easterbrook told USA Today.

Thankfully this coin is not digital, but rather physical, and its cost won't fluctuate. For instance, Swiss burger fans can come to the United States, stock up on Big Mac coins, then return to Switzerland, where they will be able to get a Big Mac for about a dollar less.

To celebrate the burger's 50th anniversary, McDonald's has unveiled a new "MacCoin" currency, which will give people even more Big Macs.

There's no mention if South Africa will be one of the 50 participating countries, but the initiative is set to start Stateside later this week on 2nd August. With the MacCoin it would already be free, so it doesn't really matter, but you get the point.

And that seems to be the case with the McDonald's Big Mac.

The iconic Big Mac was created in 1967 by early McDonald's franchisee Jim Delligatti, who served the "Big Mac Super Sandwich" in his Uniontown restaurant. This step has been taken to commemorate 50th anniversary of the Big Mac.

"Clearly, we've gotten a little more sophisticated in our menu development", McDonald's CEO Steve Easterbrook said in a phone interview.

'So we wanted a global celebration as unique as the burger itself.

The MacCoin, inspired by the Big Mac Index published by The Economist, which serves as a measurement the purchasing power of different worldwide currencies year after year, will come in five unique designs representing each decade that the Big Mac has been in existence.

The coins feature five unique designs, each representing a decade of the legendary sandwich. Customers can now log online for free at approximately 11,500 participating Wi-Fi enabled McDonald's USA restaurants.

Over the course of its 50 year history, the Big Mac has become an ubiquitous global icon.
