Friedrich Fisch, a Swiss artist hailing from Aarau, produced the initial design for the 2 franc coin, and Antoine Bovy (1795–1877), a sculptor from Geneva, engraved the original dies. However, the engraving was slightly altered by German artist Ferdinand Korn (1825–1866) for 1857. In 1860 a variant of the 2 franc piece was minted at Bern with an altered composition, and was later produced in 1862 and 1863. The depictions on the coin were unchanged, and continued to utilize Fisch's and Korn's handiwork.
