So I searched the forum and couldn't find an answer to this, which obviously does not mean I didn't miss it. I found one of your videos in a link that describes it as a Par Yield Coupon, which makes a whole lot more sense to me. You usually use discount factors of .5, 1, 1.5, and 2. I am confused when I see questions asking what the "per annum" and "two year par yield" are but the answers are derived in the same way. So here is my question;

If you had a zero rate spot curve of 15 years would the per annum, 2 year, 13 year, 7.2673 year rate be all the same? Your video would certainly imply that, which is why the Par Yield Coupon makes much more sense.

Thank you in advance.
