Jaime Hernandez:

There were over 4.8 billion Lincoln Cents struck at the Denver Mint in 1987. Making the 1987-D Lincoln cent very common.

Examples in uncirculated condition are abundant, up to about MS67 condition. In MS68 condition they become much scarcer. Anything grading higher above MS68 is very difficult to find.
