Hi, and welcome on forum!🤗

1. Upgrade to premium membership. You will have instantly access to the best bargains on the Buy/Sell section. As a regular member, you will see the sale posts only after three days, usually too late for finding cheap stuffs or very good balance between price and quality.

The precious metals priced well will fly in seconds.

2. Have a look on Buy/Back section to see what kind of prices are on here:

https://www.thesilverforum.com/forum/13-united-kingdom-ungraded/

3. Read the Guidelines of Forum: https://www.thesilverforum.com/guidelines/

4. The trading system on here is built on trust. You can build your trading feedback in time, buying few products from another members, selling few small products at good prices, or always you can use the BYB intermediary services.

Also, be open to send your goods to established members with a strong feedback history before payment. It is absolutely no risk, all of us did this at beginning and it worked very well. Your feedback history will grow quick and strong.

5. Be active on forum, read from old topics, don't be ashamed to ask questions. You will find on here only friendly people, ready to give you wise advices.

6. If you like a little banter and you are not afraid sometimes to be in the middle of a bunch of funny guys, you can join to Naughty Boys Step.😊 

Anyway, happy stacking!🤗

Stefan.

Honestly, there are a lot of great people here, but I'd start by having a look at members like Tn21.

Obviously it depends on what you are looking for & your budget, but if you are a beginner just looking for one coin to start, I have just made my second purchase from him.
He's polite, dispatches fast & I was very happy with the first Britannia I got from him (which is why I came back for another.)
 


There are other traders who are selling whole tubes at a time, but my budget doesn't stretch that far.

I'm not a premium member yet, I want to get Christmas out of the way before being that tempted.
It is a bit of a pain wading through the pages of sales threads to find the ones that are still open & visible to non members, but there can be nice things to find (I got a couple of lovely Valiants from someone else recently)

If you look at members who sell or buy things, they have a rating under their names.
The more positive ratings, the more people you already know have traded with that member & been happy.

You don't need to rush to buy though, take some time & ask yourself what it is you are trying to buy silver for?
Are you collecting beautiful things? coins that you feel have historical significance? for the long or short term? bullion to resell?
Will GCT become an issue in the future in whatever your plan for your precious metals is?
You need to work out a budget (I've seen enough things I'd have loved to buy to get a nice house in a posh part of the country in just the past few months, & something else shiny turns up pretty much every day), start watching the prices & reading up about stuff.
You need to find out how to spot fakes & learn how to do that yourself so you can feel more confident in what you buy.
You need to think about how you are going to keep records of what you buy & where you are going to store it.

The precious metals will still be there when you are ready to buy some.
Who knows, prices may plunge next week & stuff could be even cheaper than this week (or of course, the opposite could happen).

Precious metals are a slow game, so there is no massive hurry.

My dream coin is a Lydford penny, which would have special significance for me.
For the rest, I collect writers & scientists, plus general bullion which I hope will insulate my money from the deflation it seems to experience as cash.
Everyone else here has their own completely different targets they are working towards, with massively different budgets.
Figure out who you are & go from there.

Be warned though, precious metals are almost addictive.
There is something about having a really gorgeous coin of your own that brings out the Gollum in you!
