Exactly the size you want if you use a vector font. Here is how to type it in 48 pt:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{lmodern, textcomp}
\usepackage[svgnames]{xcolor}

\begin{document}

{\color{IndianRed}\fontsize{48}{48}\selectfont \textreferencemark} Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

\end{document}

You can easily scale any symbol (math or text) using graphicx's \scalebox or \resizebox macros:

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx, textcomp}
\usepackage[svgnames]{xcolor}

\begin{document}

\scalebox{5}{\textcolor{IndianRed}{\textbf{\textreferencemark}}}
\resizebox{2\baselineskip}{!}{\textcolor{IndianRed}{\textbf{\textreferencemark}}}
{\textcolor{IndianRed}{\textbf{\textreferencemark}}}
Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

\end{document}
