The fact-checks done by India Today and Boomlive disproves the statement.According to the fact-check done by India Today, Sanjib Singh, a spokesperson of the National Museum in Delhi stated that East India Company had issued coins in India which were made up of gold, silver, copper, and tin but there was no evidence of coins with Hindu Gods across the world. Dr PV Bharat, a Numismatist said that the coins with the Hindu Gods are made for sale to foreign tourists and hence the image being circulated on social media is untrue.

Even Boomlive debunked on the same issue explaining that the coins having Hindu Gods were used in the temple as tokens. The coins are not meant for commercial use and they don't have any currency values and it is also called as fantasy temple tokens which are sold in online sites like eBay.

The official website of the Reserve Bank of India shows the British Indian coins and there are no coins with Hindu Gods inscribed on it.
