Based on my personal experience & the anecdotal evidence from around the interwebs, I'd place a wager that...
150 Gem Pack = 10% Chance of Gold Hero
250 Gem Pack = 20% Chance of Gold Hero
Neither are even close to good odds that you're going to strike gold, but if those numbers are as accurate as I think they are, the premium packs are slightly the better value for gold farming. However, because of the higher price, failure to get gold will feel a lot worse. Also for players starting out, it might be best to stick with 150 gem packs to flesh out the silver roster faster & get more achievement unlocks.

The premium chest is better value than the hero chest and it isn't close. Hero chest yields ~ 8% gold or one gold per 12 packs. Premium
Chest yields ~20% gold or 1 gold per 5 packs. 7500 gems will buy 50 hero chests with EV of 4.25 golds. The same 7500 gems will buy 30 premium chests with EV of 6 golds, which is 41.2% better yield.
well, taking your calcs, i went ahead and opened some more premium chests:
Results are IN:
Emerald Green Lantern
that unlocked me a few achievements, so now i have 450 gems, which i'll use for opening some 2 more premium chests.
that's 2 golds out of a total of 8 premium chests or 2000 gems.
I could however, have opened 13 hero chests, but 2 gold? we'll never know...

I got lucky and managed to open my first premium chest this mornig and got Arkham Knight Batman. I guess I should quit opening them while I'm ahead.

Results from opening 6 packs:
3*Primal Swamp Thing, in that order.
From this forum and my own results I'd agree gold odds in the premium chest are ~20%, double the odds of the hero chest.

@Basquiat I agree with you that it's better to go with hero chests if you want Marksman Deadshot, and Poison Ivy as well.
Just realized though that, from a gems standpoint, you actually have the same odds of getting a gold.
On average, you'll get 1 gold from every 10 hero chests (1500 gems, 10% chance) and 1 gold from every 6 hero chests (1500 gems, 18% chance). So for 1500 gems you'll probably get 1 gold no matter which chest you choose, but with the hero chest you'll at least be getting 4 more chests..probably 1*..but still more chests.

Opened 4 premium chests.
1st: 10 silver Harley shards
2nd: 10 silver Batman shards
3rd: 10 silver Swamp Thing shards
4th: 10 silver Robin shards
So far these premium chests have been full of shenanigans and heart break.
