I've read somewhere that all coins are going to expire after June 30 (2 club nintendo years) but when I login, I read this:

Coin Expiration: Please note that unredeemed Coins expire after 2 Club Nintendo years (July 1 - June 30).

You have 0 expiring Coins on June 30, 2012 

So are my coins going to expire after the 30th or not? This is the only mention I've seen that says they will not expire, is it a glitch? If they don't expire on the 30th, when will they?

Given the number of coins you have now, is this actually greater than the amount of coins you've registered since July 1, 2010? If it isn't - if you currently have the same or fewer coins than you've gained since that date - there's nothing incorrect about this message; you don't have any coins which will expire, but for simplicity, they show the message to everyone. – Michael Madsen Jun 13 '12 at 23:54

Right now, none of your coins are going to expire.

Basically, how it works is you have 2 Club Nintendo years (July 1 to the following June 30) to use coins you have gotten from registering games and doing surveys, etc.

What this means is, if you were to register a game today, you would have 2 CN years from TODAY to use them.

If you registered a game a year ago, you have one more CN year to use them.

It is basically a floating window of time based upon whenever you registered the game.
