I think your obverse is a die match to the Salus one referenced.

The Pax reverse looks has similarities to the Salus one - but is definitely different Smiley - you can just imagine someone picking up the wrong die after having a heavy night Smiley

Hi Peter. Sam is really excited and has recorded it on finds.org ( FASAM 6ACF3C)  he says...It confirms another incomplete PAX piece I have seen so yours is the only complete one known. The only other front facing busts 8 of them all have SALUS as a reverse...

I will put a post up l8tr explaining the finding of the coin as it's a bit different and rather lucky.

Well here's the latest on the coin. ....I have taken it to Salisbury Museum to the new Wiltshire FLO. He has taken a photo for  Sam Moorhead so he can update the data base and include the white background with a scale alongside it.

I have been in touch with a Dix Noonan Webb, who wants the coin for there auction should I wish to sell, they have said they would sell the coin for 0% commission that amazed me. They are happy to make their  commission from buyers premiums, it would be catalogued and shown to collectors at the upcoming Coinex event soon.
Whilst the reverse of PAX is unknown with this bust, it's the facing bust apparently that collectors want hence the crazy price the last lot sold for, but I guess clearly the PAX reverse would also be high on the collectors wish list...

Pax by itself constitutes 95% of Carausian types - it's the facing bust that's the critical bit Smiley Mind you the price paid for those two was pretty crazy, although I'm sure yours might do as well.

I bet you’re still feeling the ‘big buzz’ eh Paul. You know, that lovely warm glow.
I guess you’ll be feeling it for a while yet. There’s more to come, your moment in the spotlight, as they say.
We’ll all be watching with EXTREME interest for future developments. I’d best order a copy of Searcher  Grin Wink

Just a quick update for those who are interested in this coin

It has been recorded by Sam Moorhead on the database as FASAM-6ACF3C...Roman coin expert Sam Moorhead at the British Museum said " It confirms another incomplete PAX I have seen,so yours is the only complete example known. The only other facing bust (8 of them)have a SALUS reverse.
I have sent the coin to DNW auction house in London where the two others sold early this year, they have put an estimate on the coin from the photos, but I will wait to see what they say after appraising the coin.

Since I sent the coin to London a coin dealer of note has said he has a collector should I Wish to  sell to him for...£10,000.

Peter Spencer of the Searcher has also asked if he could do an article on the coin on behalf of the Searcher, as in his words its an incredibly rare coin, obviously I have agreed and look forward to his write up.

Well guys that's it for now, the moral of the story (Always check your finds boxes) I'm glad I did....Spikey

Let me be the first to congratulate you Paul (publicly )

I’m sure we’re all waiting, with baited breath for the next up-date.

In theory it should be worth more than the example Roland gave us a link to. I seem to remember the estimated value of the others was very low. Time will tell.

Thanks for the up-date 👍
