Wolframium seems to be used in bimet coins for the first time :-).

4. WBCC Encased World Coin....by Rod Sell, Australia
The WBCC website is very large, with many links.
Amongst the many pages, is one for the WBCC Encased World Coins. In 2002 when the Euro Bi-metallic started, the WBCC encased them,
with the exception of the Vatican Bi-metallics, which were too expensive to encase.
We then started encasing the world coins, with the plan of encasing one coins from each country around the world. These coins were encased for
members to purchase, and only a very small number were produced against orders received.
The coins encased, can be seen at
