Zero Coupon Bond or Strip Bond

Bonds issued by the government, are purchased by investment dealers, who create zero coupon or strip bonds. They separate or "strip" the face value from its coupon, and then sell them separately as strip bonds. The stripped portion of the principal, and the coupons, is sold separately at discounts in the market.
