Bond interest rate

The bond interest rate is the interest percentage stated on the face of a bond. This is the interest amount paid by the issuer to bondholders. The bond interest rate may not match the effective interest rate on a bond, which will vary if the amount paid by an investor to acquire a bond was higher or lower than the face amount of the bond. The bond interest rate is also known as the coupon rate.
