# Difference between coupon rate and yield to maturity?

The coupon rate is the actually stated interest rate. This is the rate earned on a NEW issue bond. The yield to maturity takes into consideration the purchase price of a bond …bought in the secondary market. For example, if you buy a $1,000 bond for $1100 which matures in 10 years and has a coupon of 5%, your coupon is 5%, but your yield to maturity would be closer to 4% because you paid $1100, but will only get back $1,000 at maturity (losing $100). The "loss" reduces the return. (MORE)
