Some enemies will naturally drop Gold for you, such as the huge skeletal demons located in some levels. The gold that is required for this achievement MUST come from enemies and not places such as chests or crates. The gold will also be different from normal gold coins, in that if dropped by an enemy it will look like necklaces/bracelets/circlets. It's also worth more.

You can get enemies to artificially drop gold by using the "Painkiller" (The rotating saw blade melee weapon) secondary fire. The secondary fire will shoot out a ball with yellow energy streams behind it. Hit an enemy with the ball and they should jump into the air; so keep hitting him with the ball over and over again while he is in the air (Juggle him so to speak). Once you've hit him 3 or 4 times in the air, he shall drop some gold for you.

I would really recommend doing this on level 2 "The Cathedral" because there is a tarot card for acquiring 330 gold dropped from enemies, so it works towards that achievement as well. It's also the level in which you acquire the "painkiller" permanently.

NOTE: This HAS to be done in Single Player campaign, but it can be done over the course of as many missions as you want.
