Suppose that 5-year government bonds are selling on a yield of 4 percent. Value a 5-year bond with a 6 percent coupon. Start by assuming that the bond is issued by a continental European government and makes annual coupon payments. Then rework your answer assuming that the bond is issued by the U.S. Treasury, so that the bond pays semiannual coupons and the yield refers to a semiannually compounded rate.
