*** This solution is intended for the PC version of the game. ***

This achievement can be attained while working towards the "Go for the Silver" and "Go for the Bronze" achievements.

With Microsoft Solitaire Collection closed, change your computer's date to one year ago. Next start up Microsoft Solitaire Collection. If you want to get the achievements quicker I recommend buying the Premium Edition. Now start doing the Daily Challenges starting from the first of the month. Try to do all five challenges for each day. If you are stuck on a challenge skip it. Assuming you purchased the Premium Edition it will take you 10-12 days of challenges to get the Gold Badge. Now close Microsoft Solitaire Collection and change the date to the next month. Reopen Microsoft Solitaire Collection and repeat the process for 7 more months.

Once you've done 8 months of Gold Badges you can start working towards Silver Badges only for 2 months. Silver Badges take you about 5-7 days of challenges, assuming you purchased the Premium Edition. Once you've done the Silver Badges you can do 2 more months of Bronze Badges only. This should take you 2-3 days of daily challenges.

If for some reason the achievement doesn't pop, close Microsoft Solitaire Collection and change the date back to today's date. Reopen Microsoft Solitaire Collections and the achievmeent should pop right away.

**** This is for the iOS and Android versions of the game ****

You will need either your free month of premium or to purchase at least 1 month of premium for this to work correctly, I understand there are guides out there that will be fairly similar i.e changing date however this is to ensure that you can use your premium at the same time as changing your date.

Steps
1. Open Solitaire on your device
(Doing this will ensure the game syncs the data and signs you in correctly as it seems to be
a bit hit and miss when the date is set incorrectly)
2. When signed in and you are on the home screen press the home key on your device and go
into settings > Date/Time and set the date to the last day of the month you wish to work on
e.g November 30th (This will allow you to work on the entire month of November without
having to keep changing your date)
3. Go back into Solitaire and you will see that your premium has disappeared. This is because
the subscription is based off the start date and you are currently before this date. You will
also see the Daily Challenges with today's date on it. Don't worry about the date shown,
tap Daily Challenges. Using the example above you will load into the
Daily Challenges for November 30th, you can tap the calendar tab and have access to the
entire month too.
4. Once in Daily Challenges press the home key and change your date back to the correct one.
5. Go back into Solitaire and you will see the little premium badge reappear at the top right
but the calendar will remain in November.

Now this is how you set it up and you can begin to pop challenges left, right and centre earning you double coins for each one completed. This is by far the fastest method I have found and saves you from having to purchase premium for a full year providing you can get it done within a month, if not just buy another month.

As I said I know there are similar guides but I couldn't find one for this specific method so here it is. Let me know in the comments if there are any additions that need to be made!
