Fellow gaffer KT$2448 posted this in the amiibo thread:

http://cpsia.nintendo.com/101324/101324.pdf

http://cpsia.nintendo.com/101327/101327.pdf

This is some certificate for two special amiibo: Gold Mario and Silver Mario.

This definitely looks legit... and it's from the official Nintendo website, so... yeah. Protect your wallet... unless it's some reward for Club Nintendo, as suggested by some.

I believe Nintendo said they were going to release some Limited Edition amiibo, and looks like we have the 2 first ones (no Rosalina in NA don't count).

I wonder if these are separate SKUs, or if they'll be chase figures for the normal Super Mario-series Mario.

Someone pointed out Nintendo said prizes for the revamped program will be digital.

"Members who reach Elite Status will be able to choose a downloadable game from a wide selection of Nintendo 3DS and Wii U titles."

Edit: I guess that doesn't say digital only. So maybe? The colors match up with the tiers.

Oh dear lord. I can only imagine the chaos that will ensue if these are chase figures and not a separate SKU. All of the Amiibo amateurs are not ready for that hardcore toy collector life.

If it is an Elite reward for Club Nintendo, that would be rad.

Yes.
They will send five of them to retail in the Nintendo World Store on a random Saturday.

The other five will be sent to five YouTube personalities who will destroy the packaging on camera while saying "Heh. Mario is such a terrible character. I don't know why anyone likes him."
