As of 2014, one dollar silver certificates from 1957 are worth between $1.25 and $4. Uncirculated dollar certificates bring in more money than circulated ones, but it is still a very small amount over face value.
Due to the fact that these silver certificates are not very old and were not rare when they were created, they are not worth as much as some of the other silver certificates that are available on the market.
