Originally found on Nintendo's CPSIA Certificates of Compliance page come hints of the first limited edition variant Amiibos. People have been speculating that these will be Club Nintendo gold or platinum rewards, but the Elite Status section of the discontinuation notice says:
In order to reach Elite Status, you must earn 300 Coins (for Gold Status) or 600 Coins (for Platinum Status) between July 1, 2014 and March 31, 2015. Members who reach Elite Status will be able to choose a downloadable game from a wide selection of Nintendo 3DS and Wii U titles. Your free Elite Status gift will be available between April 1 and April 30, 2015. A list of the Elite Status 2015 gifts will be posted here once announced.
