I was having trouble trying to finish a level with exactly 500 gold, and found this to be a much easier way. Buy the amulet for 50 gold after level 1. Then keep playing until you have exactly 600 gold. Kill yourself and you will be returned to the level 2 shop where you can buy the second amulet for 100. Immediately kill yourself and buy the third amulet for 500 gold, achievement unlocked.

This way you don't have to worry about running over gold after you hit the exact amount you want, you can just die.

Doing it this way will also get you:

WinMo Kirby brought up that if you do overshoot the 600 number, various items can be purchased for 30 gold, so you can get 630, 660 etc and still unlock the achievement.
