Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

What is the easiest way to determine the date on which I received a specific badge?

Use the "recent activity" data, accessed with the little orange (or grey) envelope at the top of the page, then switch to the "badges" tab. It lists the day you received each badge. (You can adjust the exact date range by tweaking the URL, so as to hone in on a specific time period you are interested in.)

That's a nice solution! Thanks. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Apr 26 '10 at 14:57
This used to be correct, but became obsolete months ago with the death of the envelope. – Pops Nov 29 '11 at 17:57

What voyager said, and then the data dump if you really want to know.

Excerpt from "anatomy of a data dump":

+--- badges.xml
|     - Id
|     - UserId, e.g.: "420"
|     - Name, e.g.: "Teacher" 
|     - Date, e.g.: "2008-09-15T08:55:03.923"

The new interface makes it a lot easier, just go to your Profile -> Recent Activity -> Badges.

If it was recently awarded, and depending on your activity, you can see them at your profile. Otherwise I guess you are out of luck.
