Starting today, you can search and sort your AMIs by Creation Date. AMI Creation Date serves as an additional attribute to help you identify the AMI(s) you're using to launch new instances or to manage your AMI repository. Using the new attribute, you can sort AMIs based on their creation date in ascending or descending order, or search for AMIs created before or after a particular date that you define.

AMI Creation Date is now available on the AWS Management Console. You can find this attribute by going to the EC2 console and choosing AMIs on the left navigation menu. You should see a new column on the AMIs page called "Creation Date". To sort your AMIs by creation date, simply click on the column header, or use the search box to filter your AMI results by date.
