How would I use writeln to print a copyright symbol to the console? I have tried using the unicode code \u00A9, as well as embedding the symbol directly in the string, but I just get garbage when I run it.

You need to be using a system that supports the output.

On Windows, it means changing the console mode to utf-8 so it understands the bytes when it sees them.

import core.sys.windows.windows;
SetConsoleOutputCP(65001); // UTF-8

before you do some writeln and it should work on windows 10. On older systems, you might have to go into console properties and select a truetype font too.

(or as the user btw you can go into console properties and change the code page there, but I think it is slightly easier to do it on code)
