What is a Bond Coupon?

A bond coupon is the interest rate that a bond issuer agrees to pay to the bondholder.

A bondholder will receive coupon payments between the time the bond is issued and when it matures, usually in the form of annual interest paid. In other words, coupon payments represent the interest gained from owning the bond.
