Fortnite’s Love and War challenges can only be completed in a Limited Time Mode called Search and Destroy. The mode plays out a lot like CS:GO, with teams split between attacking and defending two bomb sites. The attackers need to plant a bomb and protect it until it goes off, while the defenders need to stop that happening. Either side can win by wiping out the other team. 

One of the challenges for the Love and War event is to earn gold in Search and Destroy matches. It is a two-stage challenge, with the first stage being 2500 Gold, and the second stage is 25,000 Gold.

Just like CS:GO, the mode also has its own economy. You can earn Gold each round. Whether you win or lose, you will get some gold, although winning a round will result in more gold than you would get if you lose.

As such, to complete this part of the challenges, all you need to do is play the game mode. You can finish it faster if you win your rounds, as you will be earning more Gold each time.
