JSON numbers are problematic. JSON-LD will treat them as integers or doubles based entirely on the presence or absence of a fractional part. To maintain fidelity either XSD types, you should stick with string values. 

A future version may change the interpretation based on JCS, which is used for JSON Literals, but it remains fundamentally problematic. 

The problem with JSON numbers goes back to the over-simplified view in JavaScript.

if data type fidelity is important, stick with value objects having a string value.
