Cupon payments

Updated: Aug 20, 2021

Annual interest paid on a bond, usually in semi-annual tranches. Cupon payments are expressed as a percentage of the face value of abond. For example, if one holds a bond worth $100 000 at 5% interest, the bondholder will receive $5 000 in cupon payments per year (or, more strictly $2 500 every six months) until the bond matures or the bond is sold.
