A treasury bond is a bond issued by a national government which enables investors to lend money to that government in exchange for coupon payments (interest). The term is most widely used to denote government bonds issued by the United States Treasury.
These bonds typically have terms 30 years until they reach maturity, making them best suited to long-term investments. Interest is paid at a fixed rate throughout the full bond term. Coupons can be redeemed every 6 months.
