I believe the obverse inscription is "DIVVS AVGVSTVS PATER", "God Augustus, Father (of the nation)"

 

It is a postumous issue. Unfortunately, I don't have any specialized books for this time period, so I don't have further attribution for it.

Hmm, I don't think the SC belongs there on DIVVUS AVGVSTVS coins with a temple. The provedentia with the temple (Janus I believe) always has the big SC to the left and right. The reverse looks more like a RIC 181 of Nero but that wouldn't match the obverse.

Could it be a provincial issue? I don't recognize the image from my scan of RIC. I don't have the provincial volumes that cover the period.

Could be, I only have the original edition of RIC and then the Sear books not the provincial volumes.

 

How big is that coin?

I don't believe this is ancient. The features are soft and the flan is too thick. It appears to be attempting to copy the coin I have attached. It was probably a copy meant to deceive tourists.
