Coupon rate = 12%

Frequency of coupon payment = Semiannual

Coupon payment = $1,000*12%*1/2 = $60

Time to maturity now = 14 – 2 = 12 years

Required rate of return = 14%

Value of bond today = $60*PVIFA14%/2, 12*2 + $1,000*PVIF14%/2, 12*2

= $60*PVIFA7%, 24 + $1,000*PVIF7%, 24

= $60*11.46933 + $1,000*0.19715

= $688.16 + 197.15

= $885.31

Since Coupon rate ≠ Required rate of return, bond value is not equal to par value.

Coupon rate < Required rate of return, Bond value < Par value
