I've noticed that some tags such as , , , etc., have tag badges. For example, StoneyB has both the 'Meaning' gold badge and the 'Meaning-in-context' gold badge.

However, there are tags that don't have badges such as , or even !! (at least vowels should have tag badges).

What determines a tag to have tag badges (bronze, silver, gold)? What are the criteria for tag badges?

Well spotted! The difference between the tags is that some have 100 or more questions and others don't. Tag badges are only awarded for tags with at least 100 questions; see the FAQ on Meta Stack Exchange.

Tag badges are only issued for tags that are being used on at least 100 questions.
