why would i buy bitcoin and then buy gold with those bitcoin??
1) to support something i believe in
2) to get something i think could be fun to look at, the gold...
3) to save money by buying my bitcoin on the cheep!
Why add another layer of fees and charges into the mix? Why not go cash->gold instead of cash->btc->gold? There are fees at every stage and you're adding more.
Just grab the cash and go to your local gold bullion dealer. Support a local business. You can speculate on bitcoin's price without buying gold.
