How to Get All the NFTs in a Collection, Sorted by Mint Date

Follow this tutorial to learn how to get all the NFTs in a collection, sorted by mint date.

This tutorial explains the steps in getting a list of all the NFTs in any Ethereum Mainnet collection, sorted by mint date from the earliest to the latest.

Step 1. Use the assets endpoint with the following details:

  • protocol: ethereum

  • network: mainnet


Step 2. Add the following parameters:

  • collection name

    • parameter: collection_name
    • value: e.g. Bored Ape Yacht Club
  • field to sort by

    • parameter: sort_by
    • value: mint_date
  • sort order

    • parameter: order
    • value: asc Ape Yacht Club&sort_by=mint_date&order=asc

Step 3. Execute the query.

For example, in cURL, you should run the following code:

curl -X GET '' -H 'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_API_KEY'



  • To authorize your request, you need to get an API key and use it as a bearer token or a query parameter. Learn more: Authentication Guide
  • Sometimes collection names and attributes contain whitespaces. When using cURL, replace them with %20.

Step 4. Your results will look something like this:

    "data": [
            "id": "5e1f4454-34ff-5118-9987-96b481625128",
            "token_id": "9999",
            "image_url": "token/0xBC4CA0EdA7647A8aB7C2061c2E118A18a936f13D/5e1f4454-34ff-5118-9987-96b481625128.png",
            "name": "#9999",
            "contract_address": "0xBC4CA0EdA7647A8aB7C2061c2E118A18a936f13D",
            "wallets": [],
            "burned": false
        {...more assets...}
    "meta": {
        "paging": {
            "next_page_token": "eyJ0b2tlbl9pZCI6OTgyOCwidWlkIjoiNjMzOWIzMWYtNjg1Yi01ZDA1LWIyNmYtNDliNTc2M2E0ZDUzIn0="

The response does not contain mint dates, but you can get them with another endpoint:
