A big burger is celebrating a big birthday. McDonald's will give out "MacCoins" with the purchase of a Big Mac in honor of the 1968 national launch of the iconic burger made up of "two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions and a sesame seed bun." Starting Thursday, each customer who buys a Big Mac will get a MacCoin, good for another 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— McDonald's (@McDonalds) July 29, 2018
