McDonald's is celebrating the Big Mac's 50th anniversary this year with an opportunity that you might not want to pass up.They are giving you the chance to score some FREE Big Macs! That's right, two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun FOR FREE!

McDonald's has minted more than 6.2 million of these coins that will be distrubited to restaurants around the globe. These coins, according to 14 News, will have "five different designs, in seven different languages, for the five decades of the Big Mac."

So what is the point of these MacCoins and how can you get a free Big Mac? I'm glad you asked.

Beginning August 2nd through the end of 2018, when you purchase a Big Mac, you will receive MacCoin currency. Then as soon as the next day, you will be able to reedeem them for another Big Mac FOR FREE.

Beginning Aug. 2 and running through the end of the year, customers can get a MacCoin with a Big Mac, and starting the next day they will be able to use the coin for another, free Big Mac. Now, 14,000 restaurants in the U.S. will participate in the promotion while supplies last, so be sure to ask about the MacCoin the next time you stop by McDonald's!
