The AAA bond rating represents the current market interest rate for the bonds which has
credit rating of AAA is 5%. The coupon rate of the bond is 5%.
Let us assume the number of years to maturity is 1year and face value to be \$100:
Interest = Face value * Coupon rate
= \$100*5%
= \$5
Using the equation
Price of bond = Interest/(1+Yield to maturity)1 + Face value/(1+Yield to maturity)1
= \$5/(1+0.05)+\$100/(1+0.05)
= \$4.76+\$95.24
= \$100
Let us increase the time to maturity to 3 years:
In this case, one has to use PVIFA table to determine the value @5% for 3 years or using the
below formula.
PVIFA @3% for 5 years =1 - (1.05)3/0.05
= 2.7232
Price of bond = Interest * PVIFA @5% for 3 years + Face value/(1+Yield to maturity)3
= \$5 * 2.7232+\$100/(1+0.05)3
= \$13.62+\$86.38
= \$100

In this case the bond is selling at par
