The origin of Aurista Coin Jewelry dates back to 1975 when its predecessor, Cartwheels, Inc., of Wilmington, Delaware, began adding pure gold to the selected relief of Morgan Silver Dollars. The extreme precision by which the plating was applied stunned the coin world. The beautifully detailed marriage of precious metals achieved instant acclaim among collectors.
In 1987, Ronald Graf, (son of Cartwheels Robert Graf,) founded Aurista to provide Cartwheels with its growing requirement of precision gold and silver enhanced coins. After Cartwheels was sold by the Graf family Aurista continued to provide Cartwheels with merchandise until it ceased operations in 1998, Aurista then had the honor of being one of the first companies to supply jewelry to the US Mint gift shops as well as their holiday catalog. In addition Aurista began making coin watch dials that were sold in Swiss Quartz watches under the US Treasury's brand, Mint Time™.
Today, Aurista remains the quality leader in coin jewelry and watches, as well as precision selective gold plating (and now platinum).
