Exclusive Big Mac MacCoins for Big Mac Fans
In its 50 years, the legendary taste of the Big Mac has gained universal recognition and a lasting legacy. Across the world, Big Mac fans recognise the ‘two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions on a sesame seed bun’ as one of McDonald’s classics that’s just as craveable and delicious as
the day it was introduced. In short, uniquely McDonald’s.
The Big Mac has become such a global icon that The Economist even used the price of the Big Mac to create the Big Mac Index in 1986, an economic tool that compares the purchasing power of different international currencies year after year. This global connectivity of the Big Mac has inspired the creation of this year’s newly launched MacCoin.
Just as the rest of the world is going frenzy over the launch of the MacCoin currency1 – McDonald’s Singapore is rolling out its 15 exclusive golden commemorative coins to the biggest Big Mac fans here.
Featuring five unique designs, these commemorative coins each represent a decade of the Big Mac, pulling in elements from that time in history, nodding to art, music and pop culture. The ‘70s showcases the decade’s flower power, the ‘80s alludes to pop art, while the ‘90s is defined by bold, abstract shapes. The early ‘00s specifically focuses on the technology that was at the forefront of the turn of the century, and the ‘10s MacCoin celebrates the past 10 years and calls attention to the evolution of communication.
In a tie-up with Class 95 FM Radio, listeners who tune in to ‘Muttons in the Morning’ between 27 August and 3 September will stand to win exclusive invitations to a closed-door Big Mac 50th celebration event on 6 September – with none other than radio DJs Justin Ang and Vernon A. Besides looking forward to an
evening of fun and games, the lucky winners will also stand a chance to bring home the limited edition MacCoin.
During the same period, Big Mac fans can also look out for Instagram contest hosted by NYLON and Alvinology to find out how they can stand a chance to win the Big Mac merchandise and MacCoins.
