McDonald’s Canada is joining in Big Mac’s 50th anniversary in a special way- by issuing special, limited edition MacCoins which entitle the holder to a free Big Mac.
Beginning August 2, 2018, MacCoins will start circulating in more than 50 countries.
According to McDonald’s, each coin is redeemable for one Big Mac at participating restaurants around the world. A total of 50,000 coins will circulate in Canada.
There are two ways to get your hands on one of those coins.
You can enter the #BigMac50 contest on Twitter @McDonaldsCanada, from August 2 until August 8 and share why you love the Big Mac, or tune into local radio stations for additional giveaways.
Coins are not being distributed with purchase in Canadian restaurants, according to McDonald’s.
McDonald’s says that the MacCoin draws inspiration from The Economist’s Big Mac Index – a measure of global purchasing power.
The coins come in five feature designs. According to McDonald’s, each MacCoin design pulls in elements from that time in history, nodding to art, music and pop culture, while the front-side of the MacCoin celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Big Mac.
And the seven languages featured on the front-side of the MacCoin represent many of the countries participating. Those languages include Arabic, English, Indonesian, Mandarin, Portuguese, French and Spanish. -CINEWS
