For some semi-numis or low end numis coins, it may lose its full numis value. For some more sought after numis coins, the value will probably still fetch some hefty premium despite the milk spot/patches/ hazing.

Case in point:
Below shows an open bid auction that just ended about 1 week back. The coin here is a 1984 China Lunar Silver Rat, 10,000 mintage, 15 grams (yes, only 15 grams), .900 or .850 silver (yup, not .999 fine) depending on where you get your info from. There is quite a fair bit of light hazing all over the face of the coin yet it still fetched one of the higher price closing I have seen in a while for this 1984 rat.

So in conclusion, it really depends on the coin in question. Giving a more specific coin you have in mind may give you a clearer answer to your question.
