Deep Discount Bond
1. A long-term debt security that, because of a low coupon rate of interest compared with current rates of interest, sells at a substantial discount from face value. Bonds of this type, if not originalissue discounts, are preferred by some investors because they are unlikely to be called before maturity. See also municipal convertible, zero-coupon bond.
2. See original-issue discount bond.
