It means your CENT is .05g underweight. Possibly from wear or a slightly thin planchet. Not enough to make much of a difference.

I thought copper pennies weighed 3.11 grams?

3.11g is the target weight. There is a tolerance of +- .12g so anything between 2.99 & 3.23 is acceptable. Yours is just slightly lighter than the minimum
