A coupon rate describes is the amount of interest paid per year expressed as a percentage of the face value of the bond. It is the interest rate that a bond issuer pays to a bondholder. The bond issuer decides on an attractive return rate that would entice investors. 2.A Microgates Industries bond has a 10% coupon rate and a $1,000 face value. Interest is paid semiannually, and the bond has 20 years to maturity. If investors require a 12% yield, what’s the bond’s value? What is the effective annual yield on the bond? Bond Value= $50 x (1-1/1.06^40) /.06+ 1,000/1.06^40

$50 x 15.04630 + 1,000/10.2857
= $849.54
Effective Annual Yeild= 1.06^2-1= 12.36%
