    MacCoins have several drawbacks:
    1. The are Backed by a non Government Agency
    3. They can be discontinued at any time,
    3. They could be easy to counterfeit,
    4. Competing coins could devalue them

    Wait - that is the same problem the US Dollar faces. Maybe they would be good afterall.

    Buy many and buy often. They will start out as a medium of exchange, and when they stop minting them they will be a store of value. Their store/value ratio will be sufficiently high. Unfortunately, when they become an international unit of exchange, Mc Donald's will flood the market and it will collapse.

      From the article: "Unfortunately Ronald McNixon will close the Big Mac window at the end of the year, rendering the MacCoins to simply nominal value."
