Calling all Big Mac lovers: the 50th anniversary of your favorite burger is almost here, and McDonald’s has big plans in store to help you celebrate the special occasion.

According to USA Today, the fast food chain will release a MacCoin on Thursday afternoon.

Yes, the MacCoin is just as it sounds, it’s a coin to celebrate the 50th birthday of the Big Mac.

If you’re not really a coin collector, this story gets better. The coin can be turned in for an actual Big Mac beginning this Friday.

The coin will expire on the last day of 2018, but if you’re a true Big Mac lover, we imagine you’ll use the MacCoin as soon as possible, right?

McDonald’s reportedly sold an upwards of 1.3 billion Big Mac’s last year. No doubt, the burger has remained a popular staple for the restaurant, and for good reason.

For anyone who grew up eating Big Mac’s during mealtime, the burger brings back a sense of nostalgia.

Don’t forget to celebrate the 50th birthday of the Big Mac this Thursday.
