The advantage of buying zero-coupon bonds is that when they reach maturity, the investor then receives the full face value of the bond. These bonds became popular in the 1980…'s even though they were first released in the 1960's.
A short coupon bond is 8.5 x 11.
You have to start with a young bird. You can tell by looking at their heads. If the black stripes go all the way down to the beak, that is a young bird, and can be tamed. They… will get used to you in only a few days if you are quiet and move slowly. Loud noise and sudden movements will always scare a bird.
A long coupon bond is 8.5 x 14.
Most bonds have two parts: the coupons and the corpus. The corpus represents the principal; the coupons the interest. Coupons have redemption dates printed on them; you turn i…n your coupon to receive the interest payment.
In most states, most banks, savings and loans, and similar institutions will cash savings bonds for you. The process is similar to cashing a check, but you might want to… call ahead, as some financial institutions no longer offer this service
A zero coupon bond pays no interest. Thus the market price for such a bond is always LESS than the maturity (face) value. The amount by which the bond is priced be…low its maturity value is known as the DISCOUNT. For example, a $100 zero coupon bond maturing in one year priced to yield 10% (in simple terms) would be sold to the investor for $90.91 on the date of issue. The investor would receive no payments from the borrower until maturity, at which time the investor receives the $100 face value. There's another form of zero-coupon bond Some brokerages will take a regular bond with coupons and "strip" it. They'll remove the coupons and sell the corpus of the bond separately from the coupons. A zero-coupon bond that was issued as such will normally have a really long maturity date--five to ten years isn't uncommon. You buy them as long-term investments...if you've got a child who will begin college when she's 19, you might want to buy ten-year zero-coupons that mature as the child enters each year of college.
if a bond has finite maturity or limited maturity then we must consider not only the interest rate stream but also the maturity value (face value). regards Sajida Gul
Zero coupon bonds are sold at a price well below face value. Thus, these bonds are appealing to the small investor because they can be bought far more cheaply than ordinary de…bt obligations. The discount is usually from 50 to 75 percent.

Go to your local discount broker, (Schwab, Ameritrade, E*trade, Scottrade) open an account and they will cash it in or liquidate it for you. There will be a fee associat…ed with the transaction. Shop around, prices vary. If they can't (or won't) do it, have them give you the name and address of the transfer agent. You can send it to them to liquidate as well. Good luck.

A coupon bearing bond is a bond with a flat yield curve. This is a non interest bearing bond. There really would be no sense in purchasing a bond that does not gather any in…terest.
