par value


par value
= face value; = nominal value
The nominal price of a share or other security. If the market value of a security exceeds the nominal price it is said to be above par; if it falls below the nominal price it is below par. Gilt-edged securities are always repayed at par (usually £100), i.e. at the par value.
