Tanya purchases a two-year bond with a principal amount of $1000. It has a coupon rate of 5% per annum, so she will receive coupon payments of $50 at the end of year 1 and $50 at the end of year 2, plus her $1000 principal.

Tanya wants to sell her bond at the end of year 1 after receiving her first coupon payment. How much can she expect to get if the prevailing interest rate is now 6%? How about 4%? If current interest rates on similar securities are 6%, her bond needs to return 6% too or no-one would buy it. The coupon rate and principal payout on the bond are given, so the only thing she can alter is the bond price. She would price the bond so that the principal the buyer pays will receive 6% and yet receive $1050 at maturity.

At current interest rates of 6% the principal to earn 6% over the year and be paid is: $1050 = Bond price x 1.06; that is a bond price of $990.57. If current interest rates are 4%, the principal to earn 4% over the year and be paid is: $1050 = Bond price x 1.04; that is a bond price of $1010.
