I know this comes up from time to time so I am putting this here for future reference.

31 U.S. Code § 5103. Legal tender
U.S. Code
prev next
United States coins and currency (including Federal reserve notes and circulating notes of Federal reserve banks and national banks) are legal tender for all debts, public charges, taxes, and dues. Foreign gold or silver coins are not legal tender for debts.

Then if we go to the Presidential coin act of 2005, Title 2 section 6

‘‘(6) LEGAL TENDER.—The coins minted under this title
shall be legal tender, as provided in section 5103.

As I have stated before, you can most definitely demand payment in gold and silver. That includes payment for your salary.
