Get the Nonce of an NFT

Returns the nonce of a given NFT.

await API.query.getNftNonce(NFT_ID);

If you're checking the ID for a newly minted NFT, allow time for consensus to be reached on the minted NFT.

You can get the AVN_GATEWAY_URL here.

const AVN_API = require("avn-api");
const AVN_GATEWAY_URL = "<node_url>";
const options = {
suri: "<account_suri>",
const API = new AVN_API(AVN_GATEWAY_URL, options);

//replace with the external ref set when minting the NFT.
const EXTERNAL_REF = "https://5DA/gxV";

async function main() {
await API.init();

let result = await API.send.getNftNonce(NFT_ID);

(async () => {
await main();

Production Example

Multiple NFTs have been minted on the AVN and HERE is a link to the AVN Explorer that provides more detail on the minted NFT. Click on the Advanced tab on the page to view more details on the transaction.
