Vespasian RIC II 0772
Vespasian 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint 75 A.D. (3.48g, 19.8m, 6h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head right. Rev: PON MAX TR P COS VI, Pax seated left, holding branch. RIC II 772, BMC 161, RSC 366.

While Pax/peace was a continuing theme on Flavian coinage, this type was issued in truly massive quantities in 75 A.D. according to the updated RIC. This may have a connection with Vespasianís newly built Temple of Peace in Rome.
