A zero-coupon bond (also called a discount bond or deep discount bond) is a bond bought at a price lower than its face value. With the face value repaid at the time of maturity. It does not make periodic interest payments. Investors earn return from the compounded interest all paid at maturity plus the difference between the discounted price of the bond and its par (or redemption) value. Examples of zero-coupon bonds include U.S. Treasury bills and U.S. savings bonds.
