30. Some reports seem to be confusing dollars with pounds:

Julian Assange backers could lose 340,000 in bail money
... Assange's backers could lose 340,000 ...

Supporters of WikiLeaks' Assange lose $320K in bail money
... Total, the backers stand to lose $539,444 ...

I'd guessing the $539K figure comes from converting 320K to $, then treating the result as and converting it to $ again
