I don't know about that. Numismatics has a bit of the air of the illusionist, I think, a numismatist sounds like someone who ought to get up on stage and perform unsettling tricks upon which a Hugh Jackman-Christian Bale movie will later be based. Philately on the other hand smacks of an adverb one would apply to the aging curator of a museum.

Well, "philately" is, I admit, a word much better spoken than seen on the page... while maybe "numismatics" is classier in print, where it doesn't sound so pedantically nasal.
