Historic map of the Swedish Gold Coast, c.1650
The Swedish Gold Coast was a Swedish colony founded in 1650 by Hendrik Carloff on the Gulf of Guinea in present-day Ghana and Togo in West Africa. It lasted to April 1663 when the whole Swedish Gold Coast was seized by the Danes, and integrated in the Danish Gold Coast.

Now, that’s interesting. It fits perfectly with the plethora of mini colonization projects European nations were experimenting with at this time. An example of them, at the other side of the Atlantic, is the Scottish colony of Darien (1695-1701).
