Harry Wilson, Ben Woodburn and Danny Ward have been named in Wales' 26-man squad for a training camp in Portugal next month.
The 62-year-old said he has "no ambitions" for a return to management as he outlined plans to travel and spend more time with his family.
Sam Allardyce's shock departure as Palace boss on Tuesday inevitably led to Coleman being linked once again with his former club.Wales manager Coleman made 190 appearances for the Eagles between 1991 and 1995 and has been linked with Palace in the past when the manager's job has become vacant.
"All I am interested in is Wales and Serbia", he added.
"All I will say is genuinely I am excited about going to Serbia. I intend to be the manager of Wales for sometime to come yet and I am looking forward to the next challenge which is Serbia".
"Lots of things are being said on the back of comments I made at the start of the campaign when I signed a new contract, but honestly all I think about is Wales".
Wales, who are in the same World Cup qualification group as Ireland, sit third in Group D, four points behind both Ireland and Serbia. That's all I'm thinking about, that's all I care about.
"I'm confident that people are prepared to step up on the night without Gareth.".
"I am not ready to say to the FAW and Wales and to my players "thanks for that".
