Most of the silver coinage, like the half dime (worth 5 cents and struck in silver, the nickel wouldn't be minted until much later), the dime, the quarter, and the half-dollar used the seated Liberty design along with the silver dollar. The penny was a lot larger than the penny we use today, closer to the size of a half dollar, and used the braided hair design. There was also a three-cent piece which was really small, made out of silver and had a star on one side and a C and III on the other. There was also a small gold dollar, smaller than a dime but made out of 90% pure gold. There were other gold coins too, the quarter eagle, worth $2.50, half eagle worth $5, eagle worth $10, along with the double eagle worth $20, each of them struck with 90% pure gold (alloyed with 10% copper to make the coins scratch and wear resistant).

They generally simply get spent as US coins. If the coins are pure nickel or plated steel (like most modern Canadian coins are) they will get trapped on magnets when ran through a coin sorter and then either exchanged for the equivalent value in US dollars by the bank/sorting company or given to employees/customers who are going to Canada. But the coins that aren't magnetic are simply spent like US coins as they have the same diameter and roughly the same purchasing power.

ALL coins are "minted" coins because they're made at a mint.They are never pure silver or gold. US silver coins used to be 90% silver with some 10% copper added to make them harder so they wouldn't wear out as quickly.Now coins like quarters or dimes are clad. That means they are like a sandwich. They have a layer of copper and nickel on the top and bottom, and copper in the middle. If you look at the side of a quarter, you can see the copper.
