Storing value with limits in object

I'm trying to limit a value stored by object (either int or float):

class Limited(object):
    def __init__(self, value, min, max):
        self.min, self.max = min, max
        self.n = value
    def set_n(self,value):
        if value < self.min: # boundary check
            self.n = self.min
        if value > self.max:
            self.n = self.max
            self.n = value
    n = property(lambda self : self._value, set_n)

This works, except I would like the class to behave like built-in types, so
I can use it like this:

a = Limited(7, 0, 10)
b = math.sin(a)

So that object itself returns it's value (which is stored in a.n). Is this
