iShares® COMEX® Gold Trust

     Registration Statement Number: 333-167729
     Form RW Application for Withdrawal

Ladies and Gentlemen:

Pursuant to Rule 477 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), BlackRock Asset Management International Inc., a Delaware corporation acting in its capacity as the sponsor of the iShares® COMEX® Gold Trust (in such capacity, the “Sponsor”), hereby requests the immediate withdrawal of the Registration Statement on Form S-3 No. 333-167729 (the “Registration Statement”) and all exhibits thereto.

The Registration Statement was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on June 24, 2007 and incorrectly tagged as an S-3 filing instead of an S-3ASR automatic shelf registration statement.

Accordingly, the Sponsor is requesting that the Registration Statement be withdrawn and will be filing a new registration statement correctly tagged.

The Sponsor confirms that no securities have been sold pursuant to the Registration Statement.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

Very truly yours,
