This chapter engages the examination of the kostgeld, showing how the commencement of kostgeld payments served as catalyst in the process of Asante administrative development. The course of this development up to the creation of the Elmina residency by Asantehene Osei Tutu Kwame (r. 1804–23) comprises the remainder of chapter. The development of Asante administrative practices with regard to Dutch (and after 1806, Elmina) affairs may conveniently be examined in six stages, commencing in 1744. In line with this, this chapter also explores the first three stages of this process: stage I between 1744–50, stage II between 1752–71, and stage III between 1776–1816. In particular, the salient features of the development of Asante administration with regard to Dutch and Elmina affairs during 1744–1816 are briefly reviewed.
