Since the law was changed so that you can't redeem silver certificates, you actually have less than a snowball's chance in hell to redeem them for silver. It's simply not possible.
Similarly, if you have a legal case which the courts have interpreted as not warranting a jury trial, it doesn't matter how many gauntlets you run, you won't be getting one. The jurisprudence of what gets a jury trial and what doesn't developed from English common law. In England there were separate equity courts where there were no juries. In the US today, equitable causes of action, administrative actions, etc. do not involve jury trials.
And, no, not everything is a "contract." A dollar bill, federal reserve note, silver certificate is not a "Contract" but rather a medium of exchange.
