Metals are elements and alloys are a homogeneous mixture of metals or metal and non-metal. Therefore, no metal is an alloy.
However, some common metal alloys are:

  • alnico - aluminum, nickel, copper
  • duralumin - copper and aluminium
  • Woods metal - lead, tin and cadmium
  • bronze - copper and tin
  • brass - copper and zinc
  • rose gold - copper and gold
  • solder - lead and tin
  • steel - iron and carbon, often other metals as well
  • stainless steel - iron, carbon, chromium and other metals
