Just two posts above, we had PIETAS AUGUS, now here's PAX AUGUS. Unfortunately, I was outbid on this one today. 2.76 g, 19 mm. Not in the new RIC.

The style is so wild on this it makes me wonder where the line would be between official and unofficial for these issues.

I would regard this coin as not official but an ancient counterfeit, until proof to the contrary can be shown.
