This kind of bond has only one cash payment, equal to the face value of the bond when the bond is redeemed. – A Treasury Bill is an example of this kind of bond. DISCOUNT BONDS • The price of a discount bond is P = (Face Value) PF(r,n) × () = Face Value 1+r n Example: Discount Bond • Suppose that you want to find the price of a discount bond that pays \$100,000 in exactly two years. If the interest rate on similar bonds is 6%, then the bond price should be
3 Coupon Bonds • The other common type of bonds is a coupon bond. • These bonds pay periodic payments called coupons and also a balloon payment equal to the face value of the bond.

4 Example: Pricing a Coupon Bond Consider a \$1,000 face value default free government bond. Suppose that the bond has an 10% coupon and 12 years to maturity.
