Gold bullion coins sell for the value of their gold content with small premiums (2% to 5%) to cover cost of production and distribution. In contrast, typically promoted numismatic coins can have premiums of 30%, 50%, even 100%, depending on the dealer.
(2017-dated American Gold Eagles are now available.)
The Dangers of Buying Gold details the pitfalls in buying numismatic coins.
