Quite a few Israeli coins have that feature.

Modern Israel - I believe you are older than that country.  ;D

It seems it issued a few PIRs back in 1960. Can we find any earlier ones than this?





Here's a more modern one, that looks rather unusual.





Off-topic now, because this one is scalloped and not circular, but it's the only example I've seen of a scalloped coin with an inner rim, and a squarish one at that.

An unusual one from Egypt: obverse and reverse are different

The "thematic collecting" section has gotten extensive enough that it can be a decent tool to identify some un-identified coins.
Excellent!

All the coins of Cuba's convertible set have an inner polygonal rim.

Cuba appears to be unique in the world, in that it has two different sets of circulation coins: a set of boring designs for its own people, and a jazzier hard currency set for its foreign tourists.

Here is an interesting example of Notgeld (emergency money) from Saxony, made of porcelain, and not metal. You could even say it was bi-porcellanic!

Yugoslavia, 50 dinars, 1993.  In fact, all the coins of the one year circulation set issued in 1993 had an inner polygonal rim. At the time, rump Yugoslavia was suffering rampant inflation because of the war(s). This attempt to fix it did not work.

The new 2011 coins from Swaziland now have either a scalloped or polygonal inner rim (apart from the 1 lilangeni, which remains round), whereas previously some were actually scalloped or polygonal.

At first glance the Kyrgyzstan 10 som coin of 2009 appears to be seven-sided (like the UK 50 pence coin). In fact, it is round but with an inner polygonal rim.

El Salvador, 10 centavos, 1995.  This series actually started in 1988. It is unusual because the obverse has an inner polygonal rim, while the reverse is a standard circular format.
