The 1/2 Fr, 1Fr and 2 Fr. coins depict a ring of stars which represent the Swiss cantons. The number of stars were modified from 22 stars to 23 stars in 1983; since the stars were updated to represent the 1979 expansion of the Swiss federation, when Jura seceded from the Canton of Bern and became the 23rd canton.
