no one has mentioned this but an alloy is a SOLUTION of two or more metals, it may be hard to understand since we refer to solutions as liquids but lets say we melt down zinc and copper and mix them properly it will on cooling for an alloy.
some examples are given by others so give them credit for it
like magnelium - as the name suggests made of magnesium and aluminuim- used for making balances.

An alloy is a mixture of metals or a mixture of a metal and another element. Alloys are defined by metallic bonding character. An alloy may be a solid solution of metal elements (a single phase) or a mixture of metallic phases (two or more solutions).For example, steel is stronger than iron, its primary element. The electrical and thermal conductivity

An intimate mixture having physical properties similar to that of the metal, formed by a metal with other metals or metalloid or sometimes  a nonmetal, is called a alloy.
Example:
  1.    Brass(copper and zinc).
  2.    Bronze (Cu+Sn).

Alloy:Brass, bronze, and steel are all alloys. A material made of two or more metals, or of a metal and another material. For example, brass is an alloy of copper and zinc; steel is an alloy of iron and carbon.

a metal made by combining two or more metallic elements, especially to give greater strength or resistance to corrosion.
An example of an alloy is the tin in the mixture of copper and tin that makes bronze. An alloy is a fusion of a two or more metals or of metals with non-metals. An example of an alloy is brass, which is made from copper and zinc.
