With over 700 undergraduate and graduate chapters, Omega Psi Phi is a well-known, international fraternity. Founded on November 17, 1911 by three Howard University juniors, it is the first predominantly African-American fraternity to be founded at a historically black university. The Fraternity’s mission is simple. It’s members work hard to attract and build a strong force of men that are dedicated to its Cardinal Principles. The ideas of manhood, scholarship, perseverance, and uplift are strongly encouraged.
Some notable members of Omega Psi Phi include Bill Cosby, Tom Joyner, Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’Neal, Steve Harvey, and Rickey Smiley. Over 250,000 men in the United States, Bermuda, Bahamas, Virgin Islands, South Korea, Japan, Liberia, Germany, and Kuwait have been initiated into the fraternity. Challenge Coins Plus recently created custom challenge coins for one chapter of this historic fraternity. Using their design ideas and concepts, we were able to create the fraternity challenge coin pictured here.
The challenge coin’s design consists of the Omega Psi Phi crest and the back of the coin displays the location of this particular fraternity. This gives others the opportunity to identify who the fraternity challenge coin belongs to and where it came from. It also allows members to look at their custom coins and remember their college and fraternal experience.
Custom fraternity challenge coins make great keepsakes. Throughout the years, they can be awarded for different reasons. They can be used to promote special events or fundraisers as well as reward academic and community-wide excellence. It isn’t unusual for fraternity members to have collections of challenge coins. In fact, you will see them displayed in their homes and offices once they have graduated from campus. Fraternity challenge coins are meant to be shown off.
