Input the character via its Unicode value, and toggle.

So, here enter "U+211e" and then use <l-Alt>+X to toggle.

A <l-Alt>+X anywhere in a document will show the Unicode value for that

Of the fonts installed with LibreOffice,  just DejaVu Sans includes the ℞
(U+211E - Prescription Take) glyph.

In addition to the Unicode toggle mechanism,  LibreOffice provides the
Special Character dialog picker.  For any given font it will show the
"coverage" of the font.  Enhancement at some point should also include
composite font, and identification of font containing a glyph--just not
there yet.   'Til then use another character map program like BableMap to
display coverage and identify fonts with Unicode glyphs.
