iShares COMEX Gold Trust (“Trust”) has filed a registration statement (including a prospectus) with the SEC for the offering to which this communication relates. Before you invest, you should read the prospectus and other documents the Trust has filed with the SEC for more complete information about the issuer and this offering.

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. The Trust is not an investment company registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 or a commodity pool for purposes of the Commodity Exchange Act. Shares of the Trust are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as mutual funds. Because shares of the Trust are created to reflect the price of the gold held by the Trust, less the Trust’s expenses and liabilities, the market price of the shares will be as unpredictable as the price of gold has historically been.

The price received upon the sale of the shares, which trade at market price, may be more or less than the value of the gold represented by them. There is no guarantee an active trading market will develop for the shares, which may result in losses on your investment at the time of disposition of your shares. For a more complete discussion of the risk factors relative to the Trust, carefully read the prospectus.
