Zero-coupon bonds

    I wanted to ask, where can I buy zero-coupon bonds? Or better, where can I find some big list of zero-coupon bonds available?
    I've looked through some stock markets, but I can't see any list of these kind of bonds with prices and everything else.

    Is there some place where I can find these?

    Thanks in advance!
  2. Which currency? There's a lot of t-bills out there, issued by a variety of govts (bills are zero-coupon bonds, normally with shorter maturities). Some govts, such as Italy, also issue actual zero-coupon bonds.

    Currency doesn't really matter. It would be easier for me if it was USD, but anything would do.
    I'm writing a research paper on bonds and I need some real-life examples for analysis and comparison, but I can't seem to find zero-coupon, only 'normal' bonds.

    Oh, I forgot to mention that a bit longer terms are preferable (5 years or close).

    And thanks for the reply!

    How about the 11/15/2015 treasury principal strip? CUSIP is 912803AE3; Yield = 1.2130, Px = 94.056
