In order to unlock a Bronze Daily Challenge badge, you need to earn 2000 coins in Daily Challenge mode. Coins can be earned in 4 ways.

Easy challenge (100 coins)
Medium challenge (150 coins)
Hard challenge (200 coins)
Complete all 3 Daily Challenges (150 coins)

In other words, play every challenge in 3 days (and one Hard challenge) in each of 12 months.

There are occasionally Expert challenges. These are worth 300 coins, and will speed things up a little, but they are not occurring every day. If you have Minesweeper Premium (the paid version, which is $1.49 a month or $9.99 a year), coins can be earned at double the rate for challenges, but the bonus will not increase.

Sometime in September 2013, an update was made to the game that downloads the Daily Challenges for each month. However, this will only occur if you have entered that month while the challenges were still on the server. You used to be able set your PC clock back and retrieve old challenges, but reports lately are that this no longer works. If you have entered daily challenge mode during any month and downloaded the challenges, however, you can go back whenever you like. This is why some people can still play challenges as far back as September, while some are stuck with more recent months. This appears to be true for all of the Microsoft Arkadium releases.

This achievement appears to be retroactive. Minesweeper has been tracking medals earned since the release so it is possible to have this already from 2012 and 2013.

(EDIT: Updated in March 2014 to reflect testing on the "set your clock back" methods)
