What is the value of a common currency?

Why does a common currency work in the United States but not in the European Union? I've heard that the difference between the strengths of the German and Greek economies (for instance) make the euro union fail, but don't US states also differ in the strength of their economies--why don't we see the same destructive effects of a common currency?
