I am trying to find out how much BTC has been mined over time hence I would like to query the rewards associated with a block. However, I cant seem to find the API endpoint from the BTC databases I searched.

Ideally, it will be something like www.blockchain.com, where we can see all the block data, including the rewards data.

Can anyone help me with this?

If you have a fully downloaded blockchain in your local machine, you can parse the raw database with this script.

Then you can find in output text files transactions with TX from hash equal to 64 zeros, there is the coinbase transactions.

Each of this TX has outputs with Value fields. The sum of this Values is the mining reward that you trying to find.
