The successor to Club Nintendo is finally here, and it seems like a solid improvement! The way it works is you can get three different types Coins through completing Missions.
Miitomo (blue) Coins are from using Miitomo. These apparently work as platinum coins as well. Mushroom (platinum) Coins are from using My Nintendo itself regularly. Star (gold) Coins are from purchasing eShop games.
(oddly, Gold seems to be more valuable than Platinum, which is why I'm wondering they didn't just go with Silver or something. But I digress)
You can then use your coinage for some choice rewards. Here's the full current list: WII U DIGITAL: Pikmin 3 Add-On Content: Battle Enemies! Stages 7-10 (20 Gold Points) Metroid Fusion (Wii U) (60 Gold Points) Super Punch-Out!! (Wii U) (70 Gold Points) Super Mario 64 (Wii U) (90 Gold Points) New Super Mario Bros.

Lots of good stuff to offer, from discounts, VC games (including the first DS VC game on 3DS!), and even new software like Twilight Princess Picross!
I got 250 coins just from doing some basic stuff--signing into Miiverse and eShop (30 platinum apiece once a week), and linking my account to My Nintendo and Facebook. It's a solid starting point towards getting that sweet, sweet Picross game.
All in all, it seems like a good replacement. My only gripe--and it's kind of a biggie--is that it currently doesn't offer any reward for buying physical copies of games. Kinda stings.
Anyway, go nuts and get some Coins! What rewards do you have your eye on?
@J.K. Riki Using coins as currency is just about the same thing, isn't it?
@ploot Yup, if you have enough gold coins to fully cover a purchase, you can. No eShop funds needed.
@TriforceBun I'm the same way, but I've still gotten a few bonuses out of it. If they continue with Wii U and 3DS games and discounts at the same coin prices, I can still get some more stuff out of it too.
