The easiest way I found to get this after you complete the game the first time.

After the credits you are returned back to Flynn's ship. On the ship, enter the lobby area where you can get to the Crow's Nest, the Anchor Crane, and Auric & Dreadbreards areas. Go into the Anchor Crane's area which is the door above Auric's. You'll notice about 5500 in treasure laying there. Pick it up with the Skylander you want to use for the achievement. Now dashboard (the treasure you picked up is saved to your Skylander figure) and make a copy of your game's save file onto a USB stick or the Cloud.

Relaunch the game and select where you put the copied save file. You're back on Flynn's ship and now return to the crane area and the 5500 in treasure will still be there. Collect it all and dashboard again. Keep repreating this till you hit the 65000.

Just to add if you did grab the treasure and continued playing the game till it autosaved, the 5500 will no longer appear and instead only 320 will now show up. Also keep your eyes open for one of the winged saphires (fairy gems) this will also save your game. If you see one of those dashboard and try again. The appearance of those is random. I would suggest tracking all those down before you complete the game so you do not have to worry about them showing up.

Keeping the extra save is great too in case you want to cap out all the abilities for a Skylander anytime you want. Only takes about 2 treasure runs to have enough to buy all abilities.
