PORT LOUIS, April 11 (Reuters) - The weighted average yield on Mauritius' five-year Treasury bond rose to 4.87 percent at an auction on Wednesday from 4.07 percent at the previous sale in December, the central bank said.

The Bank of Mauritius (BoM) sold all the 2 billion Mauritius rupees ($60 million) worth of the debt it had offered. The bids totalled 4.35 billion rupees, with yields ranging from 4.78 percent to 4.97 percent.

It also said the bond had a 3.94 percent coupon and was due on Dec. 15, 2022.

In a separate statement, BoM said it would auction a fifteen-year inflation-indexed bond worth 1.2 billion rupees on April 18.
