Face Value of Bonds, Notes and Other Types of Securities – South Florida FINRA Arbitration and Litigation Attorney:
When using the term “Face Value” in referring to a security, it means the value as given on the certificate or instrument. For example, corporate bonds are usually issued with $1,000 face values, municipal bonds with $5,000 face values and federal government bonds with $10,000 face values. If these instruments are held to maturity, the investor, absent default, would receive the face value of the instrument. This is not necessarily true if the instrument is sold before maturity as the value of the bonds fluctuate in price from the time that they are issued until redemption. This price fluctuation is based upon a number of factors, including the credit worthiness of the issuer, the interest rate carried by the bond and the length of time until maturity.
