Although quantum coherence is a well known phenomenon in quantum information theory and quantum optics, it has been investigated from the resource theory perspective only recently. Furthermore, quantum coherence has important implications in relativistic quantum information where the degradation of entanglement can be attributed to decoherence. In this paper, we investigate the quantum coherence of Dirac field modes localized in a cavity as observed by two relatively accelerated observers. The acceleration is assigned very small values and its effects are investigated in a perturbative regime. For this purpose, we use parameterized two-qubit pure entangled state and a Werner state. We find that coherence shows a periodic degradation due to accelerated motion. However, this degradation can be balanced by adjusting the durations of uniform and accelerated motion. Moreover, it is found that dynamics of quantum coherence closely resembles that of entanglement under the same settings. This similarity confirms the recent attempts to relate the resource theories of coherence and entanglement in a relativistic regime.
