US silver dollars were first made in 1794. Production of them was suspended at times since then. The last true silver dollar for circulation was minted in 1935. Even though when they were resumed in 1971 they no longer contained silver many people still refered to them as silver dollars. With the change to a bronze dollar coin the term "silver" is not used except for the older and bigger dollar coins.

If you are talking about the coins with presidents on the face and the statue of liberty on the back, they are not made out of gold they are made out of brass.

If they are $1 dollar coins, spend them. Just gold colored.
