    If I was starting out I know exactly what I would do with 3 to 4k to invest in PMs.
    Buy 3x 2019 United Kingdom Gold New Uncirculated Sovereign for £229 each free delivery (buy 1 first take delivery see how it feels buy the other two later).

    Look at all the different silver coins available from the European Mint https://www.europeanmint.com/silver-bullion/ and join BYB group order for the coins that you like to buy (I would buy
    5x of the following coins from the European Mint via Group order
    2019 1 oz CAD Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coin
    2019 1 oz Australian Silver Kangaroo Coin
    2019 1oz UK Silver Britannia Coin
    2019 1oz Austrian Silver Philharmonic Coin
    2019 1oz $1 USD American Silver Eagle Coin
    You will have purchased some of the cheapest government minted Silver from around the world and Sovereign coins with cheapest delivery option available. Total cost 1k for the above and it will give you a taste if you wish to proceed with investing the rest into PMs. I would not advise someone new to spend all their money at once into PMs. I would also recommend someone new to PMs to stay away from graded/numismatic coins IMHO.

    Lots of good advice here, so far. 
    The only thing I would add/reiterate is to start small. Don't feel you need to invest all the money you want to all at once. Start with a bit of silver, perhaps a variety of different 1oz coins. If you like them, then get some more the following month. If you really like them, don't go crazy. It's very easy to get caught up in the bug and buy too much at once, or at the wrong time. I went through a bit of a crazy spell when then price of silver was considerably higher than it is now, but buying a little every month is helping to bring my cost average down, especially at current prices. 
    When you're ready to move into gold then sovereigns are a good bet, especially ones you don't mind getting your hands on and jingling around. Just don't take them out of the house to jingle around.

    I've only been going for around 18 months and luckily through research and sheer dumb luck I stick to bullion grade coins and 1/2 soverignes and the odd 1g coin or bar. I only joined this forum about a month ago through watching backyard bullion vids on YouTube. Only wish I had found it sooner as for 1oz coins I've never found such amazing prices from the guys in this forum. My main thing and this is a big one. ENJOY IT!!
