4. Bi-metallic Medal from Sudi Rod Sell, Australia
Jeff Fuller in the UK has sent these images and information on a Gold & Silver Bi-metallic Medal for the 50th Anniversary of the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency

The only details I could find out about the medal were on this website:
Year: 2001 (AH 1422): 50th Years of the establishment of SAMA. SAMA logo in gold (inner ring)
Weight: 122.00g
Diameter: 50 mm
Edge: Plain.Fineness:
Outer ring 0.925 Silver and inner ring 0.9167 Gold plated.
Mintage: N/A. Mint: Monnaie de Paris
We have since discovered it is only gold plated.  So not a true ringed bimetallic.
