Nominal value (par value)

The face value of a security  must not necessarily equal the security’s market value. In the case of fixed-interest securities the par value is repaid to the creditor at the end of maturity, unless another redemption price has been determined. Interest payments (coupons) for bonds are also based on the nominal value.
