How rare was Strand in McDonalds Monopoly?
Strand stickers were definitely rare in McDonalds Monopoly. It was the fourth rarest after Mayfair, Bond Street and Coventry Street. There are only 110 Stran stickers, out of millions of pieces in existence.
As a rule, the higher the value of the property on the Monopoly board, the higher the prize value and the rarer the sticker is. The brown McDonalds pieces are the easiest to find, with over 2 million of each, but the prize is much smaller – it’s just an Extra Value meal.

However, attempting to buy missing McDonalds Monopoly stickers isn’t a good idea. The rules state that you not allowed to buy or trade game pieces. Not only that, but if your code is shared anywhere online it will become invalid.
You could also have your prize stolen, like one unfortunate customer who posted a picture of her winning game piece to Snapchat.
So please don’t photograph your stickers and share them on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat or anywhere else!
