The easiest, quickest way to earn this much gold is to find Lost Cities and defeat the Marquis de la Montalban as these usually reward 50,000 and sometimes higher.

Note: the achievement doesn't seem to unlock simply because you own over 200,000 gold - it appears you must sell something to a city merchant in order to get this to unlock.

When working towards this achievement, keep a close eye on crew mood. When they become unhappy, they are more likely to desert or mutiny. Desertion happens when you leave a city - deserters will take what they think is their fair share of the loot (likely more than they deserve), making this goal that much harder.

To boost crew mood, earn or buy the special items associated with a higher crew mood (they're instruments). Also, having the cook and quartermaster.specialists will have beneficial affects on crew mood.
