I have created a points layer in QGIS using Vector > Research Tools > Random Points Inside Polygon.

However, I would like to export the points as a GeoJSON file where each point has a coordinate (lat and lon) value.

So far the attribute table only shows the "id" for the point. Is there a way to do this in QGIS?

Just right-click the layer and choose Export->"Save objects as" down in the context menu (fourth entry from the bottom in my QGIS 3.28), and choose GeoJSON as the export format. Choose WGS84 (EPSG:4326) as output CRS.

The GeoJSON will have the coordinates contained.

See the QGIS documentation at Creating new layers from an existing layer for more details.
