A change in format means that the top two teams in each group will reach the tournament and they'll be joined by the best third-placed finisher, with the remaining eight teams who finish third contesting playoffs to reach the competition in France.
"There's a bit of excitement in there, anticipation. Everybody's wondering what's going to happen," Coleman told reporters.
"Teams like ourselves - Wales, Scotland, the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland - it gives us a little more chance of maybe qualifying and reaching a major tournament.
"The format that's been before is very difficult for us."
Wales were drawn against Bosnia and Hezergovinia, Belgium, Israel, Cyprus and Andorra on Sunday.
