## Manually Derive the Coupon Payment

The formula to derive the coupon payment:

`                                    FV * C * 0.01 Coupon Payment =           m`

Where:

• FV = Bond face value
• C = Annual coupon rate
• m = Number of payments per year

For our example:

• FV = 1000
• C = 6
• m = 2

The coupon payment is therefore 30:

`                                    FV * C * 0.01        1000 * 6 * 0.01Coupon Payment =           m             =               2              =  30       `
