Coronet Records was an Australian label set up in order to release material from US Columbia owing to the fact the US Columbia could not use their name because of the arrangement with the UK (EMI) label. Prior to Coronet records, US Columbia material were issued on Philips Records. Between 1956 and 1958 Coronet records were consecutively issued as 78ís and 45ís.  The records were manufactured by Australian Record Company (ARC) in Sydney and distributed by G. J. Aitken (a subsidiary of ARC). An added selling point of the label was its unique octagonal label, reputed to be the only one in the world at the time, and its distinctive bright green colour. (78ís were red, EPís brown). Not only did Coronet issue US products. From the early 60ís they started recording local acts in their new recording studios in Sydney.
In january 1963, the Coronet label completely disappeared and was replaced by CBS Records.
