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 * 100Coupon Rate =       1000        = 6`
