Bonds that issue coupons, or pay interest to investors are regular intervals, offer bondholders the option to invest their earnings elsewhere. Some issuers decide to offer zero coupon bonds, which only pay interest at the end of the investment period. A zero coupon bond sale lists the price and the payment due when the bond matures, but doesn’t usually list the investment’s interest rate.
