Because there is a typing.AnyStr (which is equal to AnyStr = TypeVar("AnyStr", str, bytes)), I think there should be a AnyNum which is equivalent to

from decimal import Decimal
from fractions import Fraction
AnyNum = TypeVar("AnyNum", int, float, complex, Decimal, Fraction)

You can easily define that yourself if you need it, though honestly the utility seems marginal.
