Tungsten is a steel-gray colored, dense metal that is considered unsuitable for producing coins. The United States Mint attempted making some patterns with the metal, but the dies did not leave a great impression. Fred Zinkann has created pattern coins using an alloy with a high level of tungsten but the dies broke after only three of the coins were minted.
