Good afternoon Gillian,
I can assure you that the £10 Christmas bonus was originally passed by legislation in 1972 and first implemented prior to Christmas of that year.
With regards to the £1 coin being theft proof, I think you meant to say forgery proof due to the two different metals used and the inscription below the queen's head being hard to copy.
I think your decision to cut round self adhesive stamps rather than remove them is the best idea, due to the fact that they do not get damaged in any way unlike previous attempts that you may have made.
Have a nice day, Fred.

Missile command/defend the cities
Lords of midnight"
I gather the issue is to commemorate British game authors and developers - so that takes these out. Mind you - many previous issues have been only tenuously linked to British input so you could be right. Having started out with Sinclair I'd nominate Manic Miner or Jet Set Willy...

Hi there Neil,
I see I'm not the only one with a little nostalgia for some of those golden oldies !
I'm sure that the Royal Mail could find plenty more to fit the bill if they so desired .
Another contender would be Jeff Minter "Yak" born in Reading of " Mutant Camel 🐫 " fame + various others .
I realise this is not a video game but how about " Hitchhiker's guide guide to the galaxy " , a text adventure by the late Douglas Adams that was very popular with the owners of the Commodore " PET " in days of yore .
No doubt many of the viewers could also think of appropriate alternatives that could be used .
Bye for now, Fred.
