The most important archaeological find in the history of the world?

From the Massachusets Spy November 1783:
A few days ago, a man digging in Seadbury Park, near Chislehurst, in Kent, found a small urn, in which were contained five small coins, nearly the size of a crown piece. On one side of which is the device of the ark, with a dove and an olive branch for the head, and round it in Hebrew characters, "Shem, Ham, and Japhet." On the other side is the head of Noah, and these words, "Noah, King of the new world, year of the new world, twice five."
