I would send you £78, which would be worth whatever it was worth when converted. The article says that they sent £93k less in the same currency they held it in. This may be a failing of the article, but as stated they have genuinely made a nice little profit.

I presume this was over the brexit vote, which is the only time I can think of with such serious movements in exchange rate in such a short period of time.
