Update: UliUdo told me he got the medals without any problems. So maybe there has been an update.

"I believe that both the 10 and 20 medal achievements have been fixed now. I had more than 10 on my PC before starting the game on my phone and the 10 popped immediately or after one game, then as soon as I had 20 on the phone, that one popped too."

I can't confirm or deny this so if it works, great(!), if not or you are still glitched use the method below :).

The achievement is simple, get 10 medals but can glitch on you if you go from 9 to 11 medals without stopping at 10 first. The game won't see it as 10 medals earned and therefore the game will screw you over. Most of the time it will do this if you already have win8 medals.

So if you are like me and your game glitched here is how i fixed it. After I got all my achievements out of the way, including the 20 medals , same glitch is known for this one, i deleted the game from my mobile.

The I installed it again, but before you start the game go in to settings and turn flight mode on or your data connection off. This prefends the game from linking with the cloudsave, and therefore the win8 version. Now you can do it again with everything at 0. After I got my tenth medal the achievement poped.

For it to count go back to settings and turn flight mode off, relaunch the game and let it sync with the cloud, it can take a few seconds but worked like a charm.

I completed these ten they are the easiest in my opnion some of them you can get at the same time.
