Zero Coupon Bonds
Bonds that do not have any stated coupon rate are called zero-coupon bonds. Instead of paying regular interest, these bonds are issued at a large discount to their face value, and pay the face value at maturity. The difference between the issue price and face value represents the interest earned on the bond.
