## Using the Coupon Rate Calculator

Suppose that you want to calculate the **coupon rate** given the following information:

- Face Value is
**1000** - Coupon payment per period is
**30** - Payments are
**semiannual**

Enter the values in the **Coupon Rate Calculator**:

Click on the "**Calculate Coupon Rate**" button and you'll get the coupon rate of **6%**:

## Manually Calculate the Coupon Rate

The formula to calculate the coupon rate is:

(Coupon Payment per Period) * (Number of Periods) * 100

Coupon Rate = Face Value of the Bond

For our example:

- Coupon Payment per Period =
**30** - Number of Periods per Year =
**2** - Face Value of the Bond =
**1000**

The coupon rate is therefore **6%**:

30 * 2 * 100

Coupon Rate = 1000 = 6
