The Ankh is a special story item that will start you on the path to the City of Gold. It can be found in the Black Market, which is a hidden entrance somewhere (it's randomized) in Jungle. You will want to bring sticky bombs there if you want to be 100% sure you find the Black Market, as I've seen the entrance be in the ceiling...

In order to find the Black Market, you must be carrying the Udjat Eye, which is a special item you can find by unlocking the locked chest in the Mines. It's a randomized item that will sometimes be impossible to get, but whenever you find either the chest or the key, you should pick it up and bring it with you in the hopes that you'll find the other piece. This item must be obtained in the Mines, so you'll need to start over if you hit the Jungle without getting it. The chest always contains the Udjat Eye.

Once you get to the Jungle with the Eye, it will start making an obvious noise and a graphical effect will happen on your HUD as you get closer to the hidden entrance. You know you've found it when it's beeping and blinking like crazy, then just put down a bomb and you'll reveal the entrance.

The Ankh is $50,000 in the Black Market. If you go there with angry shopkeepers, you will probably not last, so try to get there without pissing anyone off! If you get there with happy shopkeepers but no money, you can steal the Ankh and get the achievement even if you get killed doing so.
