Here is what I can confirm about the achievement.

Dg coordinated defense medals do not count towards the achievement.
Co op doubles medals do count towards the achievement.
The achievement counts medals in groups meaning you have to get all of your gold medals in the same type and difficulty. For example if you have 100 gold medals total but 2 were earned on easy and the rest were on normal the achievement registers that as only 98 golds. The same goes for the three types such as open or competitive.
Also you can not get multiple golds on the same exact mission they will not stack.
All modes excluding Dg coordinated defense golds do count towards the achievement.

I received my achievement directly after completing my 100th gold medal according to the rules above all of which were done on normal difficulty and open type.

With all of that said... there are still some things that I can not confirm myself, they are:
if any golds under normal difficulty count
if and how same screen co op affects the achievement
I have read that if someone else's account plays the game on the same xbox it uses the same save file and thus any new golds acquired using the other account will not be registered towards the achievement.

I would suggest to anyone that reads this to only play normal difficulty

I hope this helps! If you have any ideas on how to improve this guide please comment below!
