Coupon rate is annual payout as a percentage of the bond's par value.

Compounding = semi annually 
Par Value = 1000
Market Rate = 6.5
Market Price = 972.78
N = 40
Coupon Rate Formula
Coupon Rate = 2[ (Market Price - Par Value x PVIF(ytm%, n) ) / ( Par Value x PVIFA(ytm%, n) ) ]
PVIFA(0.0325, 40) = 22.2084332365
PVIF(0.0325, 40) = 0.278225919814
Coupon Rate Calculation
Coupon Rate = 2[ (972.78 - 1000 x 0.278225919814 ) / ( 1000 x 22.2084332365 ]
Coupon Rate = 2[ 972.78 - 278.225919814 ] / 22208.4332365
Coupon Rate = 2[694.554080186 / 22208.4332365]
Coupon Rate = 2[0.0312743394723]
Coupon Rate = 6.25%
