You are giving wrong information in your lectures. If a student only watches these videos (s)he would make mistakes in the exam. Currencies issued are not backed by assets of same value, this system was done away with a few decades ago. Now we follow Minimum Reserve System, under which RBI has to keep reserves of Rs. 200 crore in gold and foreign exchange, out of which at least Rs. 115 cr has to be in gold. Please don't make videos if you are not clear about basic concepts, it would harm students who are relying only on ur lectures.

Yes your right ...
The Reserve Bank can also issue notes in the denominations of one thousand rupees, five thousand rupees and ten thousand rupees, or any other denomination that the Central Government may specify. There cannot, though, be notes in denominations higher than ten thousand rupees in terms of the current provisions of the Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934. Coins can be issued up to the denomination of Rs.1000.
Quite helpful...kindly continue And Sir it would be great if you could make lessons for preparation of RBI and other officer exams
The responsibility for coinage vests with Government of India on the basis of the Coinage Act, 1906 as amended from time to time. The designing and minting of coins in various denominations is also attended to by the Government of India.
