No country uses them for general circulation but most countries produce silver and gold commemoratives. Expect to pay a high premium, they are collectors items. Check out the US Mint's webpage to see the new US stuff, they are cool just damned expensive.

Switzerland stopped producing silver coins in 1967. Though the new coins looked the same the silver ones went out of circulation very quickly.
