Par Value

The principal amount of a bond

Par value, also known as Face value, is the value of the bond at maturity. Almost all bonds have a $1,000 par value. Bond prices are almost always quoted as a percentage of par, so you will hear prices such as 99 or 101.5. These refer to the percentage of $1,000, and mean $990 and $1,015 per bond respectively.
