INTEREST BASED BONDS :
Coupon Bonds typically pay interest periodically at the pre specified rate of interest. The annual rate at which the interest is paid is known as the coupon rate or simply the coupon. Interest is usually paid half-yearly though in some cases it may be monthly, quarterly, annually or at some other periodicity. The dates on which the interest payments are made, are known as the coupon due dates.
Zero Coupon Bonds
A plain bond is offered at its face value, earns a stream of interest till redemption and is redeemed with or without a premium at maturity. A zero coupon bond is issued at a discount to its face value, fetches no periodic interest and is redeemed at the face value at maturity.
