Ex-Palace defender Coleman feels he and his players have a point to prove in Belgrade on June 11 after they were beaten 6-1 on their last visit to the country in 2012.
"I had a good time at the Palace".
And Coleman, who pledged this would be his final campaign after leading Wales to the semi-finals of Euro 2016 last summer, says his focus is on reaching next summer's World Cup finals in Russian Federation.
Perth-born youngster Jones said earlier this year he felt "more Welsh than Australian", and has now appeared to commit his future to Wales after being named in the preliminary squad.
"I'd love to go back to the Palace", Coleman said, jokingly referring to receiving his OBE at Buckingham Palace last week. That's all I care about. "I don't think past that, I can't afford to", Coleman said. All I care about is Wales.
"I'm looking forward to this game, that's where my mind and my thinking is".More news: Diamondbacks homer 3 times in 8th, beat skidding Mets 7-3
"When you manage in the Premier League the rewards financially are unbelievable, but it is taxing in terms of your family and private life".
"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".
Gareth Bale will miss the Serbia match through suspension but Coleman was confident that his side would get a result without the forward.
"I am not ready to say to the FAW and Wales and to my players "thanks for that". I am not ready to hand this over to someone else, not yet I am not.
