An ICCID is the serial number of a SIM card, nothing specfic to a device. Whereever your iPhone is now, if it was in use by someone on any network, it will not have the same SIM in it from when you lost it.
Some carriers, in some countries, do block the IMEI (which IS a unique identifier for the device itself) from connecting to their network. You would have to contact your carrier to ask about that. Thus far in the USA no carrier offers IMEI blocking.

Sorry, but Apple cannot provide any such information, not to users, anyway. Whether they could provide such information to a law enforcement agency I don't know, but that's the only way such information could be obtained, assuming Apple could even provide that; I doubt that they associate ICCID numbers with an iPhone serial number or IMEI since many users use multiple SIMs in a single iPhone when traveling.

As already mentioned, Apple will not do any such thing for you, at least not without a court order to do so. And since you are now asking about an iPhone you lost a year ago, I do not see any law enforcement agency showing any interest in persuing such an old case for missing cell phone.
But the reality is that no company will go snooping like that for you, not unless required to do so by legal action.
