Granted, I cannot reproduce this.  I tried on 2 systems, and on both
this character (whose codepoint is #x21a6, btw, not #x421) is
displayed using Symbola.

Does this happen for you in "emacs -Q" as well?  If not, can you tell
what customizations related to fonts or faces do you have that could
cause this?

If "emacs -Q" shows the same problem, then I guess it's some issue
related to what fonts you have installed (e.g., could it be that your
Symbola is outdated and doesn't cover that character?) or something
like that.  I could propose a couple of solutions if that is the case,
if you want to solve it locally.
