As an investor, I purchased a US Treasury bond for $100,000 par value. It was settled on Monday Feb. 27, 2017 and matures on July 1, 2026. It has a semi-annual coupon of 3% payable on July 1 and Jan. 1 of every year till maturity. I paid $104,141.00 + $472.38 in accrued interest for a total of $104,613.38. Can any of you folks determine the yield or return on this bond? I know the yield at which it was sold to me, but I wish somebody else to verify it!.
I thank you for any help you can provide.

There are many bond yield and price calculators online that you could use to verify your return. I entered your numbers in this online calculator(which is very accurate) and gave the results here:

I calculated it separately on my computer and it gives exactly the same answer.

Good luck to you.
