All copper, nickel, or silver U.S. coins are technically still legal tender. But the most important question is, WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO SPEND IT????

All true silver dollars (i.e. those dated 1935 and earlier) are made of 90% silver so they're worth at least $10 for their silver content. Beyond that nearly anything that's not extremely worn will be worth even more as a collectible item. For example, 1922 silver dollars are relatively common among collectors but still retail for at least $14 each, possibly more depending on their condition.

Sooooo - - - if you were to spend a 1922 silver dollar as $1, you'd be giving away at least $13 over and above its face value.
