McDonalds has introduced the limited edition MacCoin to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Big Mac. Each MacCoin can be exchanged for one Big Mac at McDonald’s stores in 50 countries.

McDonald’s customers in the United States will receive a MacCoin with the purchase of a Big Mac at 14,000 participating restaurants across the United States, while supplies last. A MacCoin can be redeemed for a free Big Mac at participating McDonald’s restaurants in the United States and more than 50 participating countries.

In other words, the MacCoin functions like a coupon. Buy a Big Mac – get a free MacCoin. Take that MacCoin to a participating McDonald’s, and get a Big Mac for free.

McDonald’s says the MacCoin is the first fully food-backed global currency. More than 6.2 million MacCoins will be distributed globally in more than 50 countries while supplies last.

In addition to being a fun way to get a free Big Mac, MacCoins are collectible items. These commemorative coins feature five unique designs, each representing a decade of the Big Mac. 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.

The MacCoin highlights:

* The ’70s, showcasing the decade’s flower power
* The ’80s, alluding to pop art
* The ’90s, defined with bold, abstract shapes
* The early ’00s, specifically focusing on the technology that was at the forefront of the turn of the century
* The ’10s MacCoin calling attention to the evolution of communication

The MacCoin has no cash value. You can’t trade them in at a bank for other currency, or use them to buy anything other than a Big Mac. The MacCoins will be redeemable at participating McDonald’s restaurants through 2018.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
