@iust, first welcome to CCF. Second, that looks like Probus to me, but I'm going to move this thread over to the ancients subforum so that we can get the right eyeballs on it.

Probus it is. PAX AVGVSTI on reverse, minted in Siscia. Could be this one: http://numismatics.org/ocre/id/ric.....712?lang=en

Thanks guys! Now my brain can actually see Probus on the coin :) @erafjel you are correct I think, although I'm not 100% sure which one it is 2nd or 4th ,I'm leaning more to 2nd since my coin looks more like bronze and less like silver. Cheers guys, I'm off to read more about Probus!

The coins in the link are all the same type and of very low grade billon (bronze with only a few percent silver). These coins can look more or less silvery, depending on how much silver remains on the surface (they often got a silver wash when minted to look better). For the coins in the link, difference in appearance can also be due to lightning when photographed.
